has been a member since Aug 2008 and goes by aes53.

I have been involved in photography in one capacity or another for most of my life. I was an avid photographer who studied, albeit briefly, with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind at RISD. I left photography as a profession in 1975 but have retained my passion. Over the years I have amassed a respectable collection of 20th century photography and, in recent years have resumed, in a quirky way, taking photos.

Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?
