Budget:700$ Zoom: Ultra? Image Quality: 8 Wildlife and scenary photography. Most shots will be outdoors. I like canons. Okay so right now I have a Canon S3 Powershot and its served me great. 6mm-72mm with 12X zoom and I think that includes the digital zoom. I've been able to take pictures ranging from the smallest wasp to red tail hawks 50 feet above me. I love the distance I can cover with my standard zoom lens. And the only thing I give up is high quality(sharpness and vividness) pictures. I've mostly been doing point and shoot photography(mainly because animals will not sit there and pose long enough for me to adjust aperture,ISO, and whatnot), BUT I do know a teeny bit about photography so if I wanted to I could do everything manually. I've recently tried out a Canon Rebel and I LOVE IT. I want the feel of a DSLR and its power. BUT One thing I do NOT absolutely NOT want to do is have to rummage through my lens kit bag while theres a kingfisher about to take off. (can't imagine how anyone who does wildlife photography would want to). What I want is a standard zoom lens. Something with a BIT more zooming power than the 18mm-55mm. Something that is like my Powershot. So the main reason why i want to switch to DSLR is that im expecting higher quailty, crisp, vivid pictures. Better than what im getting from my S3. Does anyone know if there are lens for the Rebel that might have similar zooming capabilities as my Powershot? I want a do it all lens. Something that will not cost as much as the camera itself. I guess I don't care much about macro but I want to be able to do landscape too. Where would I get one for cheap...er?
