I've only had my SLR cam (which is my first) now for a cpl of months but I already feel horny for a new lens (dunno why, lol). Currently uses the default 18-55mm IS lens :greddy:

What would be a good upgrade?

Lets say it don't want to spend more than $350 (if that's possible?).
Sorry I can't be more specific on my requirements but I just don't know :hs:

Halp!

i scored a sigma 18-50 f/2.8 and like it a lot.

a friend got the sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 (i think) every once in a while im jealous of his :wtc:

keep in mind they are kit lens replacements, is that what you want? or would you prefer something new?

Tamron 17-50mm if you don't mind the non-IS, loud motor, and opposite turn focusing ring.

If you can swing it, go for the Canon 17-55mm IS

lets see some of your pics im thinking about getting a xsi
Note I'm still a n00b so I'm not completely mastering this camera's capacity.

Also, all these shots have been processed in Adobe Lightroom.
