    First reason: I've no experience with IS lenses, but I don't know if IS is able to compensate the 'heaving' (up and down movements) of the boat.
    Second reason: you don't need IS for that. IS...

    Yes, this will cost you a lot of money!

    Some alternatives (besides the mentioned ones):
    Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 (no IS, but much cheaper as Canon's 17-55 f/2.8 IS)
    Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (no IS, much...

    The combination above isn't bad at all I think. If you do want to stick with one lens I would recommend Tamron's 18-250 or Canon 28-300L.
    Due to the cropfactor of your XTI, a lens starting at 18mm...

    Yes, the girl-in-color and the little one on the bridge are best in my opinion. Although the 17mm is probably a too extreme fl for that picture. I'm spotting some strange perspective in the body and...

    And also less IQ... stay away from that lens! Probably a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 fits your use, sort of standard lens on your APS-C and it CAN be verrry good. Just ignore Sigma's QC and do your own check.

    I don't like his recommendation.
    The 20mm f/2.8 isn't a stellar performer (absolutely not sharp at borders / corners) and it isn't very fast either...
    The 50mm f/1.8 is a bargain, but... on the...

    Not only the 40D, the 24-70 f/2.8 seems to be a killerzoom! A bit odd range on a cropcam, but if it fits your personal purpose... I'm not complaining.
    And also a really nice KODAK V603 (found in the...

    Ok, but using the original hood on the 17-40 combined with your 40D makes it of little optical use (only protection). I don't own the lens nor the camera, but I was told on another forum (eosdigital...

    Yes, you're right. In the EOS brochure I received together with the 70-200, in small letters in stated that the 1.4 works with the 70-200mm F4.
    Indeed it's rather expensive, so that's my reason to...

    Choice of teleconverter

    The last weeks I'm considering a 1.4x teleconverter to use on my Canon 70-200 F4.0.
    This would convert my lens into a 98-280 F5.6. But as far as I could find, a Canon EF 1.4x II converter isn't...

    The lens on the Panasonic is in my opinion not bad. It's a pity that the range starts from 35mm. It isn't very wide, the Kodak starts at a very nice 24mm!
