The kit with the 17-85 is going to be around $1999 from what I've seen. The $1599 has the 18-55mm (3x zoom) f/3.5-5.6 autofocus lens.
Let me start by saying this will be my first step into photography and I know very little. I am going to purchase the Canon 20D with the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens and spend all winter learning as much as I can. Do you think this lens would be a good one to start out with? I've seen a lot of pictures from BillJ and others so if any of you would mind weighing in please do. TIA
