Re: xx-40mm too short...

xx-40 = too short on the long end
24-xx = too long on the short end
EF-S 17-85 f/4-5.6 IS USM (or Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 DC) = just right.

I am new to the 350D scene and have been trying to find a good
everyday lens for the camera.

I just returned my EF 17-40 F/4L after a 30 day test drive. It was
an awsome lens with consistent excellent results. The only
drawback to this lens was the short total focal length (40mm). I
found myself needing more "zoom" very often. I would have
purchased this one but I will just wait for the new EF-S 17-55 IS
to become available.

I am now planning on getting a EF 24-105 F/4L to see if its longer
reach and still a decent wide angle will satisfy my everyday
shooting needs and give me the reach I am looking for in a
reasonable size package.

Anyone having good results using the 24-105 as an everyday lens on
the 350D?
