Upgrading from Kit Lens to ???? for beginner
Jul 7, 2011

Hello

First thank you in advance for reading this post or trying to help me out, thanks.

I bought my Canon 1000D or Rebel XS in January with the Kit lens but now I'm thinking of changing the lens, I'm looking for Telephoto zoom lens and seen a couple over Amazon with great prices.

As I am a beginner and has not enough expertise in lens I need your help.

Most of the one's I looked at were 70-300MM with F/4-5.6

Not only from Canon but also Sigma and Tamron

http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-70-300mm-4-5-6-Telephoto-Cameras/dp/B000AM7CJ0/ref=sr_1_35?s=photo&ie=UTF8&qid=1310023452&sr=1-35

Which in your opinion provides sharp images as for my self using this lens will be for example the moon, nature, animal (not running ones) mmm stuff like that were I need the zoom, I will however use also a tripod for night shots as my hands are not steady enough.

so what do you recommend me to pick?

I have a limited budget of 200$

Thank you
