I already have a rebel Xt and will probably move to a 40d in the summer and wil still keep the XT even then, but want to get some things for the XT, but not sure if anyone has experience with certain model things, good or bad or suggestions on brand(s) of certain items to use.
flash - thinking of the 430ex. does anyone make a better one for the canon?
photobank - lots of them out there. probably only need 40gb, but want something that transfers relatively fast and has good battery life.
I would like a nice wide angle lens and am thinking about the Tamron 11-18mm F/4.5-5.6
things i already have: nice monopod, canon remote, 70-200mm F4 L series lens, 50mm lens, photogear backpack, about 10gb in CF cards.
Also thinking about the grip/battery since I have heard great things not only about the extension of the battery life, but better feel on the camera for holding, but I have read that the canon version is definitely the one to go with on that.
any other ideas, items or thoughts on the above wanted items is welcome!!
