    Hi everybody,

    I just registered and am very happy to be here. I am 62 and decided to take up my past passion. Boy, today's DSLR is a miracle compared to what I was using in the 60s - 80s. Just bought a Canon 40 D with a Tamron 17-50 f2.8 and this combination takes photos that I could never imagine. Glad I am back with this hobby and hope to learn from you guys.

    Regards,

    Anthony Lee

    Hi friends,

    Very heart warming to read your welcoming messages. Since my first SLR in 1968, a Zeiss-Ikon, dslr has come such a long way that I failed badly in my first outing this morning. Pressed a few switches successively and locked up my 9 point AF. Had to reset all my settings to get it on again. Also discovered that my Tamron 17-50 is way too short. Now, what zoom lens will be good to complement my system (40D)?

    Wow! Welcome to CS!
    Hope to see more stuff from you!

    The 17-50 F2.8 is good for events (especially indoors), if you want you could pair it up with a 70-200 F2.8. It's quite heavy though.

    or 55-200 if you're on a budget. haven't tried it myself but many people say its a good lens for its price.

    Hi Anthony! Welcome to CS. I'm a newbie too. No complains abt the kit lens that came with my DSLR which is 18-55mm IS. Bcos i like to take street and candid shots, i also decided to invest in a zoom lens. After researching, due to my budget constraint, I narrowed it down to 2 choices.

    1) Canon EF 55-250mm IS which is by right the most logical to supplement my 18-55mm ($360 MS Color )

    2) Sigma 70-300mm DG APO Macro ( non OS $370 MS Color )

    I ended up with the Sigma mainly for the slightly better IQ and build even though the 55-250mm would be more suitable for my style as it has got IMAGE STABILISATION. I figured that since i use the zoom 95% in daylight, all i need is to bump up my shutter speed and ISO if required, then i could get very clean shots without need for IS...

    Just my 2 cents...
