I'm looking at a canon rebel t2i or t3i camera. i am a beginner and want to take action shots like wakeboarding and also sports photos during games. is this a good camera for the money for someone just learning? how many megapixels should i look for as a minimum? also, what is the max shutter speed i will use for "extreme action shots" ? would also like to get a decent lens that has a great zoom.....telescopic lens i guess it is called? would like to zoom in on action shots at sporting events from stands as well as still shots in nature from quite a distance. What are some features that I should look for in a lens. want something good for the money. not looking to spend a ton, but willing to pay for decent quality. any suggestions appreciated. I found a brand new canon eos digital rebel t3i pro-hd wide angle lens on ebay for $20 shipped. Is this a great buy or a peice of junk that isn't necessary?
