so i can get the XTi w/o the lens for 489 from dell and was wondering if its worth spending 3-400 more dollars on a 3rd party lens as oppose to the Kit lens which from what I've read sucks balls. btw this is for a complete noob whos only taken pictures with point and shoot cameras. Which 3rd party lens should i start with if not the kit lens. I'm trying to stay under 800 for my budget. please provide links to the lens i should consider.
