Sony continues to innovate while Canon delays and underwhelms. Hope this report is wrong.
Well after much consideration I ordered a factory refurbished t4i with 18-135 STM lens .. Im excited to began my photography journey .. I will keep everyone posted . Thank you for all your help. Truly !!
EF 28mm f/1.8 USM - $450
The other lenses you mentioned are good, but this one I would not recommend. Though it is fast, it has severe image quality sacrifices even when stepped down compared to any of the other lenses mentioned. It might be good for a special effect here and there due to the speed, but I would not recommend for a general lens.
I think I would benefit fri, the articulating screen , and with the refurbished deal with 18-135 STM lens at $588 I just don't think I can bet that deal .
I agree, I would buy ASAP because these deals sell out fast. The 18-135mm STM is the perfect starter lens due to its wide focal length range as well as its superior performance in video due to the STM. It will be your workhorse.Quotehat being said if I were to add another smaller lens for indoors would a cheap 50mm be ideal ? Or the 18-55mm or 40mm ? @jebrady .... You have been a TON of help thank you for taking the time to help me !!
Actually, the best small indoor lens would IMO be the Canon EF 28mm F/2.8 IS USM:
This lens is ideal because it matches the diagonal of the sensor and gives the perfect "normal" field of view for this camera. Meaning it will be like taking pictures as similar to what you see with your own eyes. It is also one of the smallest lenses available and has image stabilization plus constant f/2.8 aperature which helps greatly for indoors low light. The 18-55mm is slower & lower quality than this lens plus is redundant with your 18-135, while the 40mm is too long for indoors and lacks IS.
I think I will order the whole kit for $400 .. Even if I find I'm wanting a bigger dslr later .. I will always have the eos m for when a smaller camera would be better suited . I have looked at sample images and they look way nice !! I could pick up a small video devise for those times when I want to record. . I like the compact size and price . I'm not really wanting to shoot him running anyway ... I think the continuous shooting will catch him in action , right ?
