Now I’m sure, I’m buying a Canon 20D. I discussed the camera with the corner-photostore guy who also just ordered one, and he said an interesting thing: don’t get the lens. Apparently, it’s giving rounded off images. Now, I don’t have the worlds most fancy 28-80 lens on my EOS 500, but I’ve never had a problem with lenses. So, I went to look for some reviews. The lens in question is a EF-S 18-55/3.5-5.6 (here reviewed by photo.net). I guess my main point is having one that I can get close enough with, as my trusty 28-80 will become a 45-128 lens. Thus 18-55 should overlap nicely, and I really shouldn’t need to go for the 17-85 lens. The conclusion from photo.net comes in the beginning of the article: it’s good enough. Right. I’m not an expert. If I was, I’d buy the Canon 1MkII or something. Done deal, I can’t afford the other lenses. (Interestingly, I haven’t found any packages with a 20D and a 17-85 lens)
But, just for fun, let’s take the reviews: DPReview brings us 17-18 and 10-22 lenses and a Speedlite 580EX flash.
