Canon General / soon to be a 'Canon/DSLR newbie' here!
« on: December 02, 2012, 01:00:53 PM »
Hi guys. Just like the title says, i'm going to be a future owner of my first SLR. Coming from a P&S background, I had the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 for about 5yrs I think. I had no training whatsoever in taking pictures(taking indoor stuff/landscapes/nightscapes/people generally those who/things doesn't mind being taken a picture of. I'd love to start taking street photography though). And at often times I take videos with friends.  With that said, I've decided to get a 60d for my first one.

I know this will not be new to everyone, but i'm really having a hard time choosing what lens should I start off with. I'm stuck in between the 18-135mm kit lens or 50mm f1.4 because their price difference is only about 100euros. 60d kit (18-135mm) = 1000euro. 60d body only + 50mm f1.4 = 1100euro

Questions, 1) image quality wise, which of the two excel? 2) which would be better in low light or bright light? 3) Will I be missing out on the reach of the 18-135mm (close-ups/ tele) IF I do decide to get the 50mm f1.4?

Any input would be highly appreciated. THANKS!
