    If you're shooting in low light, I'd recommend looking for a good f/2.8 to suit your needs. IS is awesome technology, but I personally am not sold on IS (or Nikon's VR for that matter) being a substitute for a constant low aperture. I'm sure some people will disagree with me, but shooting at 135mm at f/5.6 handheld doesn't sound very fun to me, even with IS.

    Here's an update on my lens. Managed to take a quick sample pic or two right after class. Slight unsharp mask on the first one, but untouched on the second. It seems like you know what you want, but I just wanted share. Good luck

    EDIT: forgot the pics. LOL

    Not bad at all.

    Still not sure what to do here, so I'm taking my time and checking all options.
    Right now the 50mm Canon f/1.4 is looking nice for a low light lens, and I still like the idea of the IS lenses for walkaround.

    All the really good stuff is so expensive, but eventually...

    I was heavily considering buying the 50mm also for my 300d, but eventually talked myself out it. Now I just want to uprgrade my camera before going deeper in terms of lenses.

    Circular Polarizer FTW. You won't be able to use a lens hood with it though, at least not without taking it off to adjust the polarizer. The circular polarizer, when used properly, will get your blue skies to look like this

    I bought a lens. After all of the advice here, and reading all the reviews I could find, I had intended to go in and purchase a 50mm 1.4 and a 28-135 IS 3.5-5.something?

    Then I walked into the store. I walked out with the EFS 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM

    Counter clerk had extensive, detailed knowledge of just about every lens you could imagine, in every combination. Looks like this lens will cover just about everything I need in range, stability, optics and light. I've been playing with the IS. Amazing technology, and the glass is still 2.8 across the entire zoom range.

    Very impressed with it.

    Congratulations!! That puppy just came out. There has been a LOT of hype about it. Be sure to post some samples for us!

    Yeah! I'd like to see some pics too. I'm curious to see if it'll match up to the Ls.
