    Lense For my new camera

    by dwn4whadever » Fri Dec 05, 2008 5:03 pm

    I have checked out the link for Canon EOS beginners but i still have some questions i was needing some help with. I have twin 2.5 year old girls and another 4day old daughter. The reason for the purchase was to caught the 2yrs on the go and get portrait shoots of the baby. Well i was searching craiglist and found a user that was selling a 28-80mm and a Canon EF 24-85 3.5/4.5 USM Autofocus Lens. I was wondering should i consider purchasing these lens or looking at something different. Im planning on purchasing a Canon 50mm 1.8 before xmas but thats the only lens i know i really want. So guys what input do you guys have for me.

    Note: i am a brand new to DSLR dont spare the rod when explain things.

    the zooms will be perfect for catching your little girls on the run .. and the 1.8 perfect for your babies portraits ..

    congratulations on the new baby too !! Be sure to post some pics :)

    Which lens should i go with as far as the Zoom lens. the guy wants 275 for the 28-80mm and the other guy wants 200 bucks for the Canon EF 24-85 3.5/4.5 USM Autofocus Lens.

    Did you get a kit lens with your camera? or was it body only?

    Both those lenses are not an ideal first lens for your Rebel.

    The Kit lens would seem to me to be as good or better than the 2 lenses you are looking at. I think you should not be getting either of those zooms. ( But I would defer to the Canon experts here.) The 50mm 1.8 is probably worth getting.

    Why do you feel you need either of those zooms?

    I would certainly recommend a 50mm 1.8 as it is an inexpensive way to get great portrait photos. And at the price (about 130 bucks) you can use it and chuck it away if it breaks.
