As much as I hate Sigma for selling the 18-50mm 2.8 before it was fully compatable with the 20d and Digital Rebel. They seem to have fixed the focusing problems. At about $400.00 it does give excellent photos. And the 2.8 goes all the way to 50mm.

I have owned a Canon 24-70L, Canon 10-22, Sigma 28-135 2.8-4.5, Sigma 17-35mm, Canon 17-85mm IS USM and a Sigma 18-50mm 2.8 ex dc. As much as I hate to admit it the Sigma 18-50mm 2.8 has image quality on par with the Canon 24-70L in some respects even a little better. No HSM or full time manual focus but it is a excellent lens for the money. And it's best not to put a cheap lens on a excellent body like the XT
