I am new to the DSLR world and recently acquired a Canon 60D.
I have a Tamron 17-50 2.8 and a Canon 50 1.8
Low light performance is decent as well as "zoom" capability
I'd like to get a lens, or two, for a modest price that will allow me to capture better low light images and video as well as more zoom capability...
I am not sure if a Tamron or Sigma 17-200mm 2.8 is going to be feasible for video or low light although it will have the zoom and I know that a Rokinon 85mm 1.4 will be much better in low light but may not have the closeness from a distance that the 70-200 would give...are these both lenses that would solve me video issues?
Main shooting types:
3. B-Roll (city shots, scenes, etc.)
Sigma 30mm F/1.4
The zoom will increase camera shake so I don't recommend it. If you want over 50mm a 70-200mm f/2.8 is the way to go - would recommend Sigma again, though not as strongly as I recommend the 30mm F/1.4. Perspective wise on a cropped sensor camera like the 60D, the 30mm f/1.4 will look fantastic and offer beautiful low light, bokeh, color, etc. If you are working in low light I would also recommend a portable LED light that connects to where your hotshoe is.
