Okay, So I recently managed to get an XTi with basic kit lens for dirt cheap (paid $200 for a refurb by using MS cashback and buying and reselling a few cameras) and I'm quickly falling in love with this hobby. I'm already amassing a huge list of wants, and well, I know right now that I'm gonna need to set myself a budget so I don't put myself in debt with this hobby over the next year. So I've decided I'm going to spend no more then $1000 over the next year. (not including the camera I've already bought) So here's where you guys come in, I've made up my list of what I'm planning on buying, you guys tell me how you think I should change this list up and still keep it in my budget. I want a versitle setup that I can do a wide range of shots with... I will not go over this spending limit this year (except for maybe little $30 purchases here and there that I don't count) (The links I've given below are just examples, I'll shop around and find better prices on all this stuff before I actually buy) Things I'm fairly certain I'll want unless you convince me into something cheaper or convince me that something in here is total crap and a waste of money... 1) Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Telephoto Lens - $300 2) Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens - $125 3) Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash - $200 4) Cullmann 2650 Universal Grounder Tripod with 3-Way Panhead - $100 Other things I'm debating on... 1) Softbox / umbrella? 2) Wide angle conversion lens? 3) must have filters ? 4) should I get a set of cybersyncs for off camera flash? 5) anything else I'm not thinking of?
