    I have an Canon Xti, nifty fifty, lens baby 2.0, tam 28-75 f2.8, kit lens, and a 430 ex.

    I've convinced my dad to get me a lens for my birthday to take with me.

    What should I get - it can't be an outrageous price, but, he didn't ask how much it would run (and he knows they can get expensive)

    I'd like to get it somewhat soon so I can play around with it.

    -- I'll be going to Dubai and India if you were curious.

    Thanks!

    either replace the kit lens with a 17-40L or Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, a super wide 10-22, or go tele 70-200 f/4 or portrait lens like an 85 1.8 or 135L

    on my summer vacation, I found myself using my Tokina 12-24mm for 90% of my shots. I chose to take more scenery shots, especially in the city than anything else, which is why the wide angle made more sense.
