    Walk around lens for Canon 40D

    My local camera store has the 40D as a kit with either the Canon 28-135 IS lens or the 17-85 IS lens. I'm leaning toward the 28-135 partly because the longer focal length but also because I've heard...

    Why not Canon 40D if only $200 more?

    I can buy locally a Canon XSi (body) for $799 or the Canon 40D (body) for $999 (after Canon $200 rebate). That seems like a small premium for the 40D.

    The advantage(s) of the XSi seem to include:...

    Canon XSi Focus points

    The Canon 40D will (optionally) show during review the focus point that was used in the scene. I played around with an XSi in the store today, but did not see the same option. Does it exist and I...

    I think its great you have a local store that is so helpful. I'm not saying the store should charge for a simple service and I'm not intending to make a big deal out of this particular instance. I...

    I'm going to disagree with the advice of taking the camera to a local store. Why should the local store provide free service for someone who chose not to buy from them but instead chose to save some...

    Thanks for the Pop Photo data!

    Thanks swpars! This is exactly the info I was looking for. According to this test it appears that most IS lenses reviewed gained 2-3 stops (a few more--the Nikon 18-200 rocks for IS!, a few less). ...

    Canon IS

    I just found on the Canon web site that the company claims 4 stops for the 18-55 and 3 stops for the 17-85. I did not see any specific claim for the 35-128. So these are in line with what is...

    How effective are Canon IS lenses?

    I'm trying to decide on a DSLR and Canon is certainly in the running. I would like to have IS, however. I realize this may be difficult to measure objectively, but generally speaking how effective...
  9. I was ok with the wording

    Jeff--I was simply confused by the two reviews. Certainly most all of this is subjective and you absolutely have to write what YOU think and see. That's what makes your reviews a great resource.
  10. Reviews seem inconsistent, what am I missing?

    Maybe I'm misreading something somewhere, but the dcresource review comparisons of the a700 seem inconsistent as to the camera's low light performance.

    The Sony a700 review says (in part):
    At the...

    Is Sony 18-200 lens an OK lens?

    The bundled package of the a700 with the Sony 18-200 seems like a good deal. With its zoom range, I think the lens would do 95 percent of all I would need and make a great walk around lens. But...

    Canon 40D AF assist lamp question

    As I understand it, the 40D uses the on board flash as an AF assist lamp. (In contrast to the Nikon 80D, for example, which has a separate lamp.) Can the Canon's flash be set to "off" while still...
