I LOVE my 50mm 1.8. Have definately learned a lot since I got it. But, I've also found I want something that has reach power when I get outside.
One lens that I've found in my price range and has good reviews is the Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM. I understand that because of the crop factor of my DSLR that the range will be more of a 49-168mm range. I'm OK with that.
My question...has anyone ever used this lens? I've found I can probably get one for 100-150 dollars used on ebay. I just don't have the cash right now to spend more. Would I be better off getting the Canon 75-300mm lens? I just haven't heard anything WONDERFUL about it.
Any advice would be greatly appriciated!
PS - Only lenses I have right now are the kit lens (not IS) and 50mm 1.8
I just want to say THANK YOU for this post... the link was an AWESOME tool for me as I am in the same boat right now. I am off right now to check out an 85mm!!! Thanks for the great advice Amber!!!

I think I've decided to just suck it up and get the Tamron 28-75 2.8. It's more, but I think I will be much more pleased with that lens then another.
