Several different suggestions, now what???
The photos that I take are mostly of my daughter, class events, school programs (which most I can't get close enough to her), children moving at birthday parties, vacation, beach trips. With this being said, I have been suggested several different lens options & want your opion on these please........

50mm/f1.870-300mm.

More focal lenght?70-200/f4.070-300IS.

????75-300mm telephoto EFzoomEF 28-105mm85mm f/1.8.

Should I look more into telephoto or wide angle/ultra wide? Are any of these a good basic all around lens that maybe I could add an adapter to?.

Thanks!..

I have read your posts on the Canon SLR lens forum and I am going to assume that you got a 17-55mm kit lens with your Canon Rebel XTI..

You are the only one who can decide what lenses you need, and you will only find that out by using the lens that you already have..

Most people start with with a "walkabout" lens - the lens that you put on the camera if you don't know in advance what you are going to be photographing. You will probably take 90% of your shots with this lens. Your 15-55mm kit lens falls into this category..

From there you can get a longer lens if you need one - you have listed several above, e.g. the 70-300mm IS. What you get will depend on how much money you have to spend, what image quality you need, how much low light capability you need, how heavy a lens you are prepared to carry around, etc. These are decisions you have to make..

You might also decide that the image quality of the kit lens is not sufficient or that you want a walkabout lens with a wider range of focal lengths or that you need a lens that is better suited for low light situations. Again, these are decisions that you have to make..

Use the lens you have and when you find that you have a specific need for a second lens, come back and ask a more specific question.Chris R..

Use your kit lens for a while and see where it falls short. If you need a longer lens most of the time, buy a telephoto. If you need a wider lens most of the time, buy a wide-angle. Only you can determine what you need most..

You mentioned several "indoor" situations .... you may need/want a FASTER lens than the "zooms" provide..

So the 85mm F1.8 you listed may be your best choice. (with or without flash).

No "zoom" ..... but we survived a lot of years without zooms ... (more closer or back-up) !!!.

I went with the:.

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Telephoto Zoom Lens.

And.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens.

From what I read these 2 may be best for budget & starting out, then as I learn more, I can change up. What's the difference in the 70-300mm & the one that I purchased?.

Any more pointers on the 2 that I got????? : ).

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!..

The 50 f1.8 is a good prime at a great price and will probably do you the most good in the indoor situations if you can get close since it lacks any reach while the 75-300 is an old lens and was replaced by the 70-300 which is a good choice for daylight outdoor shots. The previously suggested 85mmf1.8 would be a better candidate for indoor school programs though..

Depending how much you paid for the 75-300 you should exchange it for the upgraded 70-300 but keep in mind although it has the reach it will probably be too slow indoors...... and you'll get close blurry underexposed shots.http://www.photozone.de/8Reviews/lenses/canon_70300_456is/index.htmRegards,Hank..
