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?

Last July snapped this shot of Isola Maggiore just before taking a ferry to that island, the only one of the three on Lago Trasimeno still inhabited. Lake Trasimeno is in Umbria, near the Tuscan boarder, and is Italy’s largest non-Alpine lake.
