    and i'm looking to buy a new lens.

    im looking at wide angles, in particular the canon 10-22mm. should i consider the 17-40mm L?

    also, are circ polarizers worth buying, and should i think about buying a flash, too?

    i think i have enough memory, about a handful of 512mb cards and one ultra II 2gb.

    is there anything else i should think about? :dunno:

    thanks guys :wiggle:

    17-40 is way more useful, unless you are only taking super wide shots.

    a CP is essential

    a flash is also, but it also somewhat depends on what you shoot mostly

    I did a bit more research on the 17-40mm, and it seems to be damn good. Do you guys think I'd need a lens hood?

    adorama and b&h have it for $634 after a $45 rebate. is this a good price?

    I think ebay has it for a little cheeper, but there are more risks :dunno:
