    What would be a better solution:

    1- Getting a RebelXT with the kit lens

    or

    2- Get a body-only RebelXT, then opt for the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM instead? I haven't read much about this lens, though.. Is it a little slower than the kit lens?

    I just figure that this one would cover a long range, and it has IS.. After reading reviews, though.. that 17-40 looks pretty good.. I'm jsut not sure if it'll go long enough.. Any other suggestions?

    Second option has more range and would be slightly better as a walk around lens especially after it starts getting dark. The kit lens should be slightly sharper (esp in the middle) than the 17-85. :dunno:

    Just get a 70-200mm f/2.8L IS? :dunno:
