This may seem an odd question on a Nikon forum, but I need some advice on finding a Canon Lens.

I need some advice from the Canon shooters here. For those that don't know me (most of you), I teach at an inner-city school in Erie, PA, where in addition to my classes I introduce students to photography and try to help them develop an interest in making pictures. A friend of mine just donated a Canon EOS 5D III for me to give to a deserving student! However, it has no lens.

Now the problem is I shoot NIKON. I am not at all familiar with the Canon lens line-up. So I want to find a gently used, general photography lens, preferably a zoom, for not too much money, since I am going to give it away to a student.

What are my best options for a lens for this 5D mk III? What should I look for? What lenses should I avoid?

Thanks in advance.
