Best Canon L Travel Lens for Canon 450D
Jul 30, 2011

Hi all

I currently have a Canon 450D and on recent trips have taken a Canon 55-250 IS with me. I have taken some really nice pictures but want to spoil myself and buy a Canon L lens.

The only issue I have had with my current travel lens is that with close up shots where you say need to get people in with say a building behind them its far from ideal as you have to stand so far back.

I seem to be good at taking pictures but rubbish at choosing the correct lens!

Canon make a 28-300 L lens but wonder if there is anything else that is shorter on the distance but where maybe I could use a 1.4 Canon extender for when I need the extra distance.

Also what is the next step up body wise from the 450D that would make a big difference still keeping to Canon bodys.

Many thanks
