    I will be adding on a short section on what MTF is and how to read the charts soon. Any other suggestions?

    I have another lens I want to feed into the dcresource.com ultimate-lens-picking-machine and see what the results are... Tokina AT-X 242 AF 24-200mm F/3.5-5.6 ??? Any thoughts on why this may or may not be a good budget all-around lens consideration?

    I just want to let everybody know that I'm out of room in terms of sections. Both posts are at the 10k post limit. I can add in lenses, but no material. I'll see if I can compress what I have.

    A section on filters would have been nice, but I'm completely out unless Jeff ups the post character limit.

    aparmley, we need to see how it performs relative to the two Sigma's and the Tamron.

    The Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 DC EX should difinitely be in there. This is one crackin' Lens.

    I'd say image quality wise, it's up there with my Canon 70-200 f/4L and that IS saying something. I really can't fault it.

    Version 2.0 is here. I touched up the cosmetics and rewrote some parts. Don't think that I've turned a blind eye towards those lens recs. I've seen everything and am considering each one that gets suggested.

    With that said, is there anything else content-wise that should be placed in this guide?

    Very nice, looks like you know your HTML as well as your lenses.

    Though you mention macro-ing in pt. II, it doesn't show up again. I hope you add some appropriate lenses to your recommendations...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll add a Macro lens recommendation set in the next revision.

    How about a cheapskates' guide to finding the best used lens values? There's a huge used market for Canon, Nikon, Tamron, Sigma, et al lenses for film SLRs, and most of them work fine with dSLRs.

    Speaking of which, I sealed a deal for a "Magic Drainpipe" earlier today and I'm stoked!

    As much as I'd like to write something on scouring around for used lenses and making sure you know what to look for, that's beyond the scope of this article and outside my knowledge base. Someone else will have to write that one. Good suggestion though!
