    correct me if i'm wrong, macro lenses are mostly for marco shots while normal zoom lenses are for telephoto shots.

    so i believe the quality of both normal zoom lense and macro lenses makes a very big impact.

    Not really. Macro lens also can take normal telephoto photo greatly.

    For those Sigma lens, IIRC, that's not real macro lens. It is zoom telephoto lens with a shorter working distance (which can take macro 1:2).

    I agree. And it's not expensive, too! Compared with the 350D kit lens, it's equivalent with added 55-200mm range.

    does recent sigma tele still have the 'peeling coating' problem?

    Well, my sugguestion is, play around with default kit lens first. Get used to the functions and misc before laying another lense.
