Here is a good sharp and fast setup.
50mm 1.8 II
Done, now go take some photos.
I like that option, interesting combo. But why is this a good combo? Please explain to a novice photographer haha.
Perhaps a Sigma 17-50, sharper than the 17-70 and less distortion on the wide end. Then add a Canon Refurb 70-200 f/4L. That would be about 1200.00 combined. You'd have 27-320 FL covered. Then you could save for a 10-22 EF-S.I would get a canon 70-200 f/4 L but I'm worried about the f/4 being to slow
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
A couple of things to consider -- the Tamron 17-50 non-VC is quite a bit cheaper used (e.g. fredmiranda forums).
Get at least one fast prime. I'd recommend the 50mm f/1.4, though you could get the f/1.8 if you were on a really tight budget.
The tamron non-vc was the lens I was considering hsshs
