    The image n20capri posted could use a tighter crop. Perhaps a defensive shot but for an offensive shot you need faces.

    I can only guess that the color difference is due to auto WB and possibly metering. I really don't have any answers for you, sorry. I've only had this happen to me a few times, and that's when I shot...

    70-200mm is the zoom. 70-200mm is classified as a telephoto lens - it'll get you closer to the action. A wider lens would be something like 18-50, a standard kit lens.

    The numbers are the...

    You're going to need a fast telephoto lens (large aperture) and a camera body. I personally think the Canon Xti will be fine. You'll also need something like a Sigma 70-200 f2.8.

    I guess I'm hesitant because I only have the kit lens to serve between the wide angle and the tele.

    Wide Angles

    I currently have the 30D with 18-55 kit lens, 70-200 f4 and EX 580.

    I've considered replacing the kit lens with something in the 18-50 range but have decided to opt for a UWA and a 50 f1.8.

    I...

    Don't we all. I wonder why they chose f2 instead of f1.8. I've never shot that wide open, is there a huge difference?

    I would buy the f2.8 over the f4. Yes IS is great, but it won't help you stop the action. You need the f2.8.

    40D Kit

    Does the 40D and 28-135 kit come with a separate box for the lens? I ask because I'm thinking of buying the 40D kit and selling the lens. Any opinions?

    It's very difficult to use a CP for action photography. I use mine mostly for landscapes and shoots that I can control. Works really nicely to get a more blue sky and remove the glare from water.

    I'm not sure about least favorite... Rockwell comes to mind but he's not professional. My favorite would have to be Steve McCurry. Love his work.

    If you really want to rent, forget the 17-55 and get something longer for the ceremony. Perhaps the 70-200 f2.8 VR or a longer and faster prime.

    Flash and 17-70 will be fine for the group shots....

    No, the 200 AW will not fit the f2.8 lens. It's a tight squeeze with my 30D and 70-200 f4 attached. The f2.8 is longer and wider, I don't think it'll fit. If a local store has the bag, try it out.
