Advice about lenses
Mar 21, 2012

Hi all,

I am planning to upgrade from the Canon G12 to the Canon 60D or whatever model replaces it toward the end of 2012. I am not sure whether "kit" lenses that may be bundled with the camera is what I want.

I mainly photograph flowers and plants, both indoors and outdoor gardens, as well as in botanical gardens. The pictures I take indoors are closeup, but I also would like to do macro images. I wish to avoid flash.

Occasionally, I will do small group shots and portraits of friends and family.

I am willing to spend about $400 for a lens that will be suitable for my purposes, and would consider non-Canon lenses.

I welcome information and recommendations to help me make an informed decision.


Canon EOS 60D Canon PowerShot G12
