Hi Jimmy, I'm a bit surprised you didn't go for the kit as discussed on the other thread - the Canon 18-55mm aint perfect by a long stretch, but it sure is the cheapest general purpose lens around when bought as a package.

Anyway, if you've gone for the body alone, and are after a budget general purpose lens, you should consider some models by Sigma and Tamron. That'd be a good starting point, but 200 CDN is going to be tough... I think you'll be limited to one of their 18-50mm lenses for that price. Or you could look on ebay for the Canon 18-55mm.

PS - you could of course alternatively buy a 2nd hand Canon lens, and some EF models will be very cheap, but they may not be that wide on your camera - remember DSLRs like the XTi reduce the field of view by 1.6x, so if you were to pick up a cheap, say, 28-80mm, it would perform like a 45-128mm.

So if you want wide angle on your XTi, you'll need a lens which starts at around 18mm.

thank you so much for the info sir !
I will get a used kit lens for the xti/xt model, Its best I start at the basics and go on from there, its the right move for a rooke DSLR owner.
