OLympus EP3 17mm..
It sounds like you like nice wide angle lenses. unfortunately the ultra wide angles (UWA) out there are not exactly within your budget, the most feasible one for you now would probably be the EF-S 10-22mm (16-35mm equiv. on crop cameras), but that would cost a few dollars short of 1k haha.
There are 3 types of people in this world. One that can count, and one that can't. :sweat:
I still cant decide which body to get..haiz/.//
Canon Eos1000, Alpha 200(cheap price) but high ISO noisy...Pentax k200d...(haven tried a real one yet in sg)
OLympus EP3 17mm..
do take note of diff brand use diff lens and some body can only use certain lens even same on same brand. eg. canon 5D use EF lens only. 40D use EF and EF-S lens
canon have EF and EF-S lens
Nikon got AP and AP-S, Some with VR some without, FX and DX... etc
Olympus and panasonic DSLR using 4/3 lens
blah blah blah...
BTW if u want to know what lens Olympus and Panasonic DSLR using, you can visit
read all these before your decision.

Life is like Photography, to improve, you have to keep shooting!
Hi jlpk007, just found this 1-wk old thread.
- before you buy that camera, think about the long term eg will you be using the camera 3 years down the road because that will probably decide the type of lens you will need. Diff brands have diff type of lens and price
- use the kit lens first if your camera comes with one - usual case. Do not buy any lens yet. After using awhile, then you will naturally 'know' what type of lens you want.
- you really need to understand lens and all its jargon f(number), shutter speed, etc, otherwise there will not be any informed decision making because then you will not know what the lens can and cannot do. A good place to start will be ClubSNAP's Photography 101 for Newbies
- other useful sites:
This site will explain what EF, L-series, etc for Canon lenses and other notation used by the major lens vendor.
Photozone has a lens review section as well.
Tamron site has a site where it allows you to have a look at how the focal point changes the perspective of subject.
I am both happy and sad for you have taken the first slippery steps to the expensive but rewarding world of photography!
