    I know there are more than a few good shooters here, so...

    I just picked up a Canon Digital Rebel XT. At this point, I'm stuck with the kit glass and the 28-80 (i think) kit glass from an Elan IIe.

    Can you suggest a shooting plan to explore this camera with emphasis on proper exposure values? I'm looking to refine my shooting.

    Previously I've used the elan, a sony digital, an old konica slr and other point and shoots.

    Also, how bad is this lens? Is the lens from the elan any better?

    Here's a gallery of past shots I've tossed up on the web:

    It's just thrown together and badly in need of reorganisation, when I get around to it.

    get a grey card, a white card and a black card or paper. Meter off each one, then bracket your exposure by a stop. you should have 15 pictures. 5 of each card, one of each, 2 stops under, 1 stop under, middle, over 1 stop and over 2 stops. Look at your results. 2 stops over should be the best exposure for the white card and black card should look best 2 stops under. play around and practice using your light meter.
