Hey guys,

I'm quite interested in my photography and am looking to get my first Digital SLR.

Going on reviews and my budget, I think i'm gunna choose the Canon EOS 500D.

However, that chosen, I would also like to get a zoom lens for some wildlife shots etc, but can't understand all this EF 55-80mm blah de blah malarky.

So, can someone please explain a little, in simple terms, the differences in the zoom distances etc, so that I can choose one with a capable zoom on it?

Hope that's possible and that what i'm asking makes a little sense!

Cheers

Some excellent pics on here

I am new to photography and have just purchased a canon eos dslr, with a efs 18-55mm lens the query I have is that my dad has an old canon slr with quite a few exspensive lenses that he no longer uses so if I were to purchase an fd to ef mount for my camera( i know they are hard to come by but have found one!) is the picture quality noticably reduced by using fd lenses rather than ef ones, I am only looking to use the camera for capture shots and family hols etc although I would like to get more into the scenic shots etc. I would love to be able to justify buying a decent macro lens but im sure the wife would not be too impressed and dont want to rock the boat as Ive only just got the pass for a once a year trip to France ( happy days).

Thanks in advance for your knowledge

I understand mate but im finding the shorter lens a bit limiting when he is further away and the larger lens to much when he is up close i guess im looking for a lens between the 2.

In short, no. I don't believe that with the best lenses money could buy if you aren't capable of taking a decent photo (I'm not saying you aren't, I hope you understand ) then I don't think any lens is going to make it look like you can take a photo...

Im new to this photography lark lads i have a cannon eos 500d with the 18-55 lens and the 50-255 lens im mainly going to be using it for fishing and pictures of the nipper and of course holidays. Any lenses i can get specificly that would improve the pictures ? Although i have got some good shots with the 2 lenses above already. Im playing around with the manual setttings but most of the pictures are being taken on the pre set options.

edit your post, and after your link code leave a space, add width=500 then finish with the > immediately after the 500, like this; link width=500>

best to test your pics in the test thread, found in FAQ's and help section; http://www.carpforum.co.uk/Shared/Messages.asp?TopicID=204069
