Rwy 8 Landings @ DEN!

A rather unusual activity at KDEN. They're doing rwy 8 landings!! That's almost a 6 mile taxi to the gate...

RE: 300D Lenses....... Which Is What?

1)All Canon lenses have AF.
2)Any Canon lens works with the 300D.
3)depends how much you want to spend. The 18-55 and 75-300 are good lenses but are not Canon's best.

Hope that helps!

10X zooms on DSLRs may not be your best option. Besides the lens alone will cost a $1,000. I suggest you buy 2 lenses that cover the whole range. The Canon 300D with a 75-300mm (4X zoom) will cost you around a $1000. You cn get a wide-angle later.
