I'm having fun trying to pick a couple of good USM lenses with Image Stabilization (IS)...
Right now I'm leaning towards first getting a 28-135 IS (link
) as a general walkabout lens.
And then I'll wait a couple of months and make mental notes every time I find myself wanting either more zoom or more width. With the 1.6x field of view crop on the digital sensor, I suspect I'll want 17-18mm wide more than 200mm or 300mm zoom.
Edit: On a whim, I just got high bid on a 75-300 USM (but non-IS), so now I definitely don't need to worry about the zoom end. Reviews (link
) summarize it as "small, light, cheap, mediocre", so I'm not expecting much, but it'll be fun to play with.
dz7, I recorded Pan's Labyrinth, so maybe that'll be something fun and different to try screenshots with. Although I'm getting spoiled by Blu-Ray... it tends to make every compression artifact in HBO HD seem even worse in comparison.
