Start with a 50mm F1.4 (Sigma/Canon or a 40mm pancake though I like the F1.4 more than F2.. You can acquire later whatever you think you need. You can also sell it if you find out later that you don't need it. A 24-105 F4 L is also a good start. You can sell it later if you don't need it also without losing much (maybe gain a little bit more if you purchase it as a kit lens).
The OP has already stated they have a 50mm 1.8 and 40mm pancake... I'm sure expect is supposed to be except as it would make more sense anyway, hehe.
Best all-around lens for walkaround use - probably the 24-105.
I didn't have any problems with Focus point selection but I did notice one new quirk...
When you power up the camera while using (some) 3rd party LP-E6 batteries you'll get a a warning message telling you "Communication with Canon LP-E6 battery is irregular" - "Continue to use this battery?" - "Cancel - OK"
Cancelling shuts down the camera without turning off the power switch while the "OK" option lets you continue.
I'm presuming nothing's really wrong, just Canon's way of nagging you into using their batteries only.
Not much to comment on- I generally like them, especially keeping in mind who these pictures are really intended for (buyers looking for a house.)
For me, the outdoor colors are too vivid and saturated. I like the indoor ones- but the exterior shots I just find a little overwhelming. Particularly the blues, but they don't feel "cool", like the white balance is off. I think there's just a lot of blue, and the overall saturation makes it feel overwhelming. I'd dial that back a bit. Otherwise, the composition looks interesting, helps to visualize the house, etc.
I've got the 24-105L and love it. I also have the 50/1.4 (along with a bunch of other oddball 50-58mm vintage glass) and the new Sigma 35/1.4 Art lens. Here's my advice: If you want a good prime and you have to dump one lens to add another, get the Sigma 35/1.4 and dump your 50/1.4. The 35 is a bit wider, but at f1.4 there is no comparison to the 50. Sharp sharp sharp, corner to corner. I have to stop down to about 5.6 on my 50 before it gets good, and then you're into the same territory as the 24-105. The 35 has great sharpness and good bokeh, much better than the 50/1.4.
I'm just frustated and i want canon to know!
I mean i love the 60d, but no real video af. I want a seald dslr
with a big viewfinder -and a good video af. Maybe even a gps since i do make most of my photos outdoor on many different locations...again, frustrated.
I'm a #1 photographer...according to my own survey
I think we are tied
In fact everyone on this forum is tied for 1st place with 1 vote (except those who live in Chicago where they vote early and vote often and their dead grandmother's can vote too )
