Well, at your advice, I went to amazon to look at the used/refurbs they have on this, and found a seller with a great rep who claimed it was brand new in box with paperwork and caps for $165 so here's hoping all goes well.
Thanks and Repped!

I'd be interested in hearing anyone's opinion re: 35mm f/2.0 vs 40mm f/2.8, when paired with a FF (5D2 or 6D)
My only request is that price is not considered a factor in this comparison

Noob when it comes to Cameras if someone could answer a few questions I'd appreciated it.
Bought my mom a Nikon D5100 with stock lens.
Whats a good all around size lens that would be good enough that she can take pretty much any picture she will want, without breakn the bank.
Maybe a 70-300mm?

I regularly see the lens available used on photography forums and ebay for less than $150. I'd personally just skip the warranty and save $80+.

you feel that this is a good lens for everyday shots of kids? it's on sale at Worst Buy for $232 but I have $100 in rewards....

doesn't matter even after it is in the cart and you try to check out the price is Total: $346.68 with tax in NJ.

|blunky||Wow not sure why Canon is even still selling the 75-300. It's terrible.|

I have the 75-300, almost never use it unless I really need that extra reach, and I never go beyond 200mm on it, thats when you get the distortion that this lens is known for.
I wish I went for the 55-250 back in the day, now im saving up for the 70-200 F2.8 usm is.

Here is the MTF: http://www.canonrumors
its sharper. but it costs more and is worse in low light. the 50mm will get about 50% more light and has better bokeh (still pretty ugly bokeh imo). If you are thinking of a 40mm, I'd just pony up a little more and get a 50mm 1.4. It focuses faster, is even better in low light, and has a nice focus ring.

Well, looks like I've just missed it, but does anyone have any new user recommendations for lenses?
Also, how did you guys learn to shoot, a class or what? I've had a couple DSLRs, and am currently owning (but never really using) a Canon XSi... I want to mostly take pics of the kids, or maybe a great scene somewhere, but all I have is the kit lens... Someone point me in a better direction now that I've got a few bucks to spend...
