New lens or maybe a flash for trip to Europe....?
Feb 3, 2011

Disclaimer: Wife does all the photos with a 30D and I know zip about photography.

My wife has the 30D with the 18-55 kit lens and a 70-200 f/4.0 IS 'L' lens we bought separately. Up until now, 90% of photos have been used for outdoor field hockey games and indoor wrestling photos.

With Valentines day coming up and my wife and daughter going to Europe this summer, I want to get my wife something useful. Can anybody recommend a new lens that she might benefit from that would compliment what she has? Or should I get her a quality flash component...or both?

I know even less about what makes a good flash that I do lenses so any and all advice is appreciated. I won't say cost is no object but it's not too much of a factor. I'm sure I will order whatever I get online, usually use B&H. Thanks!!
