hey all, i'm new to this forum, but after trolling around here for abit, i discovered it's a great great board! anyways, the reason i made this thread is cuz i require some help.

i recently purchased a nice 450D rebel xsi and it's a great great camera, but what i'd like to know is that how do i go about, knowing what sort of lenses can fit my camera? like what i read up, only EF S and EF lenses can fit my 450D, but what are EF S and EF lenses?

sorry if this sounds noobish, this is my first adventure into the realm of DSLR's and would like some advice on it =) thanks for the patience =)

Not only EF-S and EF fits your new toy.

There are 3rd parties lenses from Sigma and Tamron and other brands which may need an EF Mount adapter that are also compatible. They are the cheaper alternative to Canon.

yes you are right, i did get the standard kit lens along with the camera. it's a pretty good one too, just that, i figured i'd like something with a little more zoom power

if u dont mind swapping lens, try getting 55-250 IS, very good 1 :D

Agreed. The 55-250mm is a good complement lens to your kit lens.

If not, you can save up more for the 24-105 or even the 70-200mm. Both are 'L' and if your budget allows, nothing more than look to them. I am not infecting you to buy the 'L' but they are of superior quality in terms of optics and build.

Word of caution: Once you step into the world of 'L', there's no turning back. ;p

I hope to step into the L world this year. Getting either a 17-40L or a 24-105L, but the 100mm f2.8 macro looks nice as well. EFS 17-55mm not bad either. Haha.


If you want more zoom, you can try the 55-250mm lens. It's a good lens with good IQ for the price range.

i wouldn't encourage the 24-105 L just yet. 24mm isn't very wide on a 1.6x cropped sensor camera which you're having.
