    I'm thinking about taking the jump and buying a Canon EOS-10D. Anyone know of any place online that has good deals on lenses? I've looked around, but somehow OT knows about places I can never find, so I figured I'd ask.

    If it helps, I'll probably be looking for stuff with a low aperature since I'll be doing low light stuff like concerts.

    www.cameraworld.com had amazing deals until they were bought out/integrated with ritzcamera.

    :sad2:

    where are you buying your Canon EOS-10D and how much are you paying for it?

    Yeah, I started out looking a Ritz to give me some idea and thought the prices seemed kinda high.

    I"ll probably be buying the camera in town since I haven't seen it sold for less than $1499 at any reputable places online. I think the local best buy has them, or there is a few camera shops to check out.

    i second the recommendations.

    i also have the 10D, and B&H is one of the BEST places to buy from

    I won't be spending anything like 1k on a lense, but I do plan on trying to get the nicest (EF) I can afford along with it being suitable for its intended application.
