    they all look the same to me but have different prices....
    I broke my kit lens and was looking to replace it with the IS version. I have a rebel XT if it matters

    I just want to know the difference and which one I should go for.

    I don't have more money to invest in much more expensive so no need to say that whatever lens is better than this.
    Thanks :o

    thanks for the offer but after looking at comparison the IS seems to be a better lens and sharper too and it's within my budget soo I'll go IS
