Well, I just completed my first year of college. I had to put down my photo stuff for about 3 months to concentrate on school. BUT, I'm ready to start shooting again.
So, as a "good-job-on-not-dying-after-your-first-year-in-college" present, my family is letting get any lens. As long as it's around $1000-1200.
This is the criteria:
1. Great IQ
2. Covers a good range (wide angle-telephoto range).
3. Works well with a crop camera *Canon T1i*
I've been eying the Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens but I don't want to just get one lens.
And I don't plan on upgrading to full frame in the future.
(I do plan on upgrading to a 7d in the near future though).
This is the combo that has caught my eye though.
- Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 with a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Macro
I'd to hear some other options I should consider from anyone
