I am having so much fun connecting with new friends with the common love of photography. JPG has kept me from losing my mind this past winter... the longest and coldest I can remember. I live in New York state in beautiful Hudson Valley. I am challenged to improve my skills by all the wonderful entries I see each day on JPG. I'm not much for the technical end of photography....I'm really a point and shoot girl. I am trying to understand the extra options on my new camera.

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?
