I got my camera in the mail today, I ordered the Rebel XT from Vanns.com. My husband and I both read the item's description, called and asked questions, and comparison shopped. The only problem is, apparently since all of the others we saw for sale came with the 18-55mm, I guess we started to assume that's what lens came with the cameras that came with a lens. I got it today and it comes with the 28-90mm lens. I paid $429 free shipping, did I still get a good deal? Can someone tell me in the most basic of layman's terms what the difference is, I'm a beginner with the slr camera and the terms are looking like a foreign language. Also, I assumed a regular SD memory card would work for me which of course I learned after beginning to read the manual that it takes a CF. I see some for about 20 bucks on ---- with free shipping at 4G size. That seems like plenty to me, but what do I know, things could be different for this type of camera. Gneral rule for me the pictures come off and onto the computer within a day or two of being taken and I rarely take more than 200 shots at a time. Thanks folks, you've already been of great help in me getting this far with my purchase.
