Lenses / Help me choose: EF lens for 60D
« on: December 12, 2012, 02:26:26 PM »
Hi all,

I'm planning my next purchase and I got confused after reading way too many reviews, so I though it would be best to ask you guys  :)

I own a 60D with only one lens- the 40mm 2.8, and I think it's time for me to get a new one.
The 40mm is pretty awesome lens for its price, and it's so lightweight that you can carry it all day long, however, I found the focal length a bit too long when mounted on a crop sensor for everyday shots and as a walk-around lens, and it will probably be my backup lens.

Worth to mention that for me, photography is a hobby, and I'm not a pro.
I shoot all kind of styles - from street photography to landscapes and portraits (both in daylight and in lowlight environment)

I though about a versatile lens, something that will allow me to use wide angle to somewhat telephoto.

I thought about one of these lenses:

  • EF 17-40mm f/4L USM    - Because I like the wide angle ( and I don't think the 17-35 justify the price tag)
  • EF 24-105mm f/4L IS EF USM  - Looks like a very good range coverage, but I lose some of the wide angle.
  • EF 24-70mm f/4.0L -    Looks good on the paper, but It's still not available, and I have an opportunity to purchase a lens now.

My budget is around 1200$ (give or take ~100\200$)

What would you get? are there any non-L lens that might be worth checking out? (I think I will upgrade to FF in the future, so I don't want to invest in EF-S lens.

Thanks for any assistance
