    True, however, camera bodies will be changed. Your lenses will last you through 2-3 body changes at least. This is why everyone says spend the money on glass.

    I got a Nikon D50 for x-mas. First time DSLR user. Gotta' say, its a badass camera. Look at my other thread w/ my 'best' work & see the pictures. That's also with the kit lens.

    Along those lines - and not to threadjack too much - is there a generic equivalent or rough equivalent to L glass? I really want a super-wide angle, 1.8 or so, but Canon's costs more than my camera? 14-28 mm or so would be preferred. And Seth, this will help us both...

    Any thoughts?

    Canon's wide angle lenses aren't considered the best on the market. Even so, if you're looking for a fast (f/1.8) UWA lens that is "L" equivalent that doesn't cost more than your body - you're not going to find it.
