  1. i do not have any personal exp. with 50d it is a newer camera than 40d and suppose to be better however i have seen a lot of reviews mention the high ISO performance is not as good as the 40d i will leave it for you to research on this for 70-200, you have choice of Sigma (F2.8, OS & no OS), Tarmon (f2.8) & Canon (F4 / F2.8, IS & no IS) not only Canon has the best image quality & built quality I recommended Canon over the others simply because they have more consistent quality control & better resale value and with the budget that you mentioned earlier, F4 is your only choice I have the 2.8IS and love it a lot here is a good web site to look for lens review http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/
  2. 50-250 focus slow and not very accurate if HD video is not important for you maybe consider a second hand 40d + 70-200 F4 (IS if you can) with that budget a lens that can focus fast will helps a lot in motorsport & action sport shoting much better IQ as well dont worry about Megapixel too much, digital film (sensor) size is what makes the difference
  3. the lens is designed for Crop sensor camera so it will works well with your GF's 50D this is one of the widest lens you can get for 50d here is some example of 12-24mm on 50d http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=tokina+12-24mm+50d I have sold this lens once on ebay but the buyer making lame excuse about paypal not working i am about to re-advertise it so please let me know if you are interested before i do so 24-105 is now sold

  6. you do aware Nikon 14-24mm looks like this? it does not have threads to accept any type of filter and the hood is not removable the only way to put a filter on is through a filter holder and if u have one of those, why would you want a UV filter for it???? I am a canon user myself, you might able to tell me something i don't know
  7. ricklee: There is no 50mm f1.8 on current sigma lineup there is 50mm f1.4, which is not cheaper than the cannon equivalent but better http://www.sigmaphoto.com/shop/standard-prime-lenses GoldZilla: the 18-55 kit lens is a reasonable lens, but i won't rate it as a decent lens. I will also not say the 50mm is better than the 55-250IS they serve completely different purpose Actually, the 55-250mm IS kit lens should be the lens that rated pretty damned highly for something so inexpensive Zennon: the 50mm f1.8 is a fantastic lens for it's price, the problem is the focus length of it 80mm (on a 550d) is very limited and i will not recommend it to people who use it as their only lens mitric88: Stand zoom will be the lens you use the most and will be the first lens to go if you upgrade my advise is to spend money on it for great money for value with great image quality i will go for Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 (A16 - http://www.tamron.com/lenses/prod/1750_diII_a016.asp) that $500? lens is sharper than my 17-40L & 24-105L that 2-3 times the price second lens will be the 50mm 1.8 Zennon recommend if you want a cheap fast prime lens or the 55-250is if long focus range is what you after once you reach this stage you should have good idea what you want
