Depends on the effective FL MileCruncher is looking at . Both lenses have different effective FLs and applications. Personally I haven't read/heard rave reviews about 28-135, so I'd stay away. Again, if you can tell us the FL you're looking at, it becomes easier for us to suggest if it's a good buy or not.

I just ordered Canon 18-55 IS for 99 EUR. Now I am looking for the buyer for my Canon 18-55 Non-IS lense, I think I will sell it for 25 EUR.

Hello Bhpians,

Just wanted to thank all contributors for making my baby-step into DSLR a lot simpler. This forum was extremely helpful. Just got the Canon EOS 1000D kit (18 - 55mm lens). Mighty thrilled to flaunt an SLR but unfortunately still got to learn how to use the different functions (just realised it is not as simple as the P&S ). I have decided to test the waters before taking a plunge so decided on a small(est) budget

The CANON supplied bag didnt look very nice, infact it looked pretty cheap. I have still not got mine since they said it takes about 20 days after registering on site.

Please suggest on some good protection for the camera and lens.

Also, any suggestion on some good reading material into DSLR & photography?

Rgds,
Aj

Thanks. The elephant picture was taken at Masinagudi (Sigur).

OT: That particular pachyderm has had the honour of kicking my old car and pushing it for a few feet (I was not inside then, thankfully). Next time I need a push start, I might ask for its help.

Over here in India, you might be able to get 2k for the lens.

Are you sure its EF-S??? I have never heard about a EF-S 28-135mm lens!! Please check again!!

Now which brand are we talking here for a new 55-250 MM. I have a feeling its not Canon.
I thought you were talking about canon lenses!! BTW, EF and EF-S means they are canon lenses!!!

Yes it is a EF-S lens as it was mounted on a EOS 400D.

Milecruncher as I wrote before lens with EF mount lens can also be mounted on EF-S body so just becuase it was mounted on EOS 400D is not a sure shot way to say it is EF-S and not EF , So please check the lens specification to be sure.

If the lens is EF on EF-S body effective focal length range will change to approx 50 -200 mm.

Check the dot. If lens aligns with the "red dot" its a EF lens. If it alignes with the white squarish dot, its a EF-S lens.
That said, both EF and EF-S lenses have actual focal length in full frame(35mm) marked.
So 18-55EF-S is actually 18*1.6-55*1.6 lens.

The only exception I have come across so far is the Tokina 11-16. Even though it's an EF-S lens, it has to be aligned with the red dot for mounting on the camera.

Tokina is a crop sensor lens. EF and EF-S norms regarding the alignment to red and white dot is followed by canon lenses.
Infact you can mount crop sensor lenses to full frame bodies(in case of tokina/sigma/tamron) only you will get vignetting at full wide, and you have to zoom to get rid of vignetting.

So 18-55EF-S is actually 18*1.6-55*1.6 lens.
Humm and till now I was thinking EF-S some how gives same equivalent focal length by reducing the size , but yes I should have thought the equivalence is in terms of angle of view and focal length is always same so lens mount can not alter laws of optics.

Tanveer by same logic as above your 10-20 Tokina on Crop sensor body should also give effective angle of view which is equivalent to 16 - 34 mm and Tokiana being crop sensor lens just means that the amount of glass is less ( diameter of lens is smaller) and on a Full frame it will cause vignetting.
Or other possibility is that it is actually 6mm at wide end giving effectively ~10mm on 1.6 crop body ?but this looks highly unlikely.
