Need advice on a telephoto lens
I'm about to retire and want to find things to do that I didn't have time for previously. Photography and birdwatching have always been hobbies but I'd like to get into photographing birds a little more deeply. My problem is that I need a better zoom lens (I think that's the same as a telephoto lens??) to capture birds up-close but not too personal. I use a Canon Digital Rebel XT.
Any advice on a good, reasonably priced lens that will get some super fine shots would be greatly appreciated.
