Any assistance would be useful. Please respond : LUSENET : Ask Bob : One Thread

Hi, Im new to SLR photography. I havent purchased a camera yet because Im not sure what I should buy. I do know that I would like to purchase something from the Canon EOS line. I would like to photograph sports primarily (and their respective venues.) I intend to tour all major league baseball stadiums and would like shots of the stadiums, fields, and players in action. Can anyone suggest a body and lens that would get me nice results? Ive been looking at the canon website, and looking at lens specs, but find it confusing. Example, what do the numbers represent? I understand mm, but I dont understand what follows. Example: /2.8L etc. I also want to photograph nature and landscapes. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.
