Well, yes...that's exactly what I did. The best choice would be to get the 18-135 and the 50/1.4. But I wasn't sure that was viable from a cost standpoint. Even better would be the 15-85mm lens and the 50/1.4. Plus a good tripod for nightscapes. Or the 5DIII and several L lenses. Just stop me when the cost gets too high...
Well that escalated quickly. And yes, that's obviously out of the question. maybe if I decide to sell me liver in the near future, i'd get that setup. At the moment, I only have the resources to get 18-135 OR 50/1.4.
Really thanks for the input. That made me really rethink about my choices
You're right there, the kit lens+50/1.8 would cost less
Hmmm 15-85mm? It costs around 800$(750euro) Wouldn't there be an L lens in that price range? *Not planning to buy one soon, just curious.*
Welcome to the club, you're on your way to becoming a poor man.
What a nice way to welcome a newbie LOL! A little bit depressing if you think about it, but still.. LOL!
... but not the usability, the larger size, the lcd screen and back dial make a large difference in handling (at least to me).
My thoughts exactly. Since I'm coming from a P&S cam, I would love to at least get out of the P&S feel of the cam. I've tested my GF's dslr, which is BTW a Nikon 3100(yes I know, conflict of interest, but still..
) and it was too small for me, and was almost the same size as my former camera. Wasn't for me.
