A&P I have $700 to blow on a lens... what do I get?

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Oct 3, 2007.

  1. I'm not getting a wide angle anymore, but I am looking for a good all purpose lens...

    I will be shooting interior, people, cars, some buildings and such ... so a zoom is necessary...

    if you change your mind on the wide angle, I have an 18mm 1:4 for sale cheap.

    I would say the 50 is a good all around lens for all of the purposes you said...


    Maybe a 35 2, but I would invest in some flashes and pws as mojito said

    or maybe save up and get a new body?
