has been a member since Apr 2009 and goes by Onggi.

I am a retired art and photography teacher. As a photography teacher I told my students not to judge a photo by the subject matter (subject matter prejudice). This happens here on Judge only the quality of the photo, not the subject. Looked at 1000s of photos and find this to be true. Subjects are not touched even of good photo quality

Since December of 2006 I have used a Panasonic-Lumix DCM-FZ50 - first digital - I love it and the Leica lens! Previous 20 yrs, Minolta MAXXUM

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?
