    Thanks...I do know about the different models at f3.5-4.5 and f4-5.6. Former is good, latter is much less good. Luckily it's sunny too so I should be able to get some good test shots!

    As a dSLR newbie, it strikes me that a 350D (XT) cannot be as good as a higher model and therefore some pictures will be worse than if they were taken using a better body. My 350D does have trouble...

    That's my choice too. I should have bought one last week but things didn't go as planned and I never got time to visit the shop... Hopefully, this week I will be succesful, just in time for Easter.

    Thanks too for the numbers. It really helps to know what settings are used to get the picture. I realise too that the numbers are only a part of whole equation.

    Those images come out fine (for me, anyway).
    The 17-40 shots do look soft (to my untrained eye).
