Yup, good combo

So what would you all recommend as the ideal "starter" set and a realistic budget to work with? T2i body + the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 + . . . ? $1500?

Yup, nice combo.

Obviously try to get it for the best possible price but just remember I spent that much 7 years ago on a Rebel 300D with kit lens! You sure get a lot more for your money these days.

Good luck!

P.S. Here's a group of shots I took a couple of months ago with that lens in very low light. I've included all 9 shots to show you that not all low light pics turn out, primarily because of the slow shutter speeds, but I still got a few keepers.
