3rd party lenses? Help.
Jul 27, 2010

Hi everyone -

Just about to invest in my first non-kit lenses; a 17-50 2.8 (sigma) and a superzoom (sigma or tamron). I also haven't quite eliminated the Canon versions of both of these for my Rebel XS.

The only think keeping me from pressing the button on the Sigma/Tamron lenses is that I've read of potential future issues with newer camera bodies being incompatible with current third party lenses due to the fact that third party manufacturers reverse engineer without having the actual Canon specs.

I'm assuming I'll want to upgrade/replace my XS in a few years but will probably stick with crop sensor cameras. Should I be concerned about investing my $1100 in Sigma glass and suck up the extra $550 more than that to get Canon? Or am I worrying too much?
