Lenses for video with T2i
Jun 9, 2012

Hey everyone.

I received a Canon T2i because I really want to get into video. Currently I am using the kit lens as I was a novice. Now I am looking at some better wide angle lenses. I was thinking the Tokina 11-16/2.8. I plan to shoot photos at like conventions (Penny Arcade Expo) while shooting action sports for another website I run. I have shot a few videos and taken a ton of pictures in all type of videography and photography.

So I was thinking Wide Angle that is good in low light and around $600. I was also thinking of picking up the "Nifty Fifty" as I found one at a local shop for around ~$90.

Opinions on what I should get? I tend to shoot outdoors like snowboarding and mountain biking videos a little more as conventions don't roll around every weekend for gaming.

Thanks for any help.

Canon EOS 550D (EOS Rebel T2i / EOS Kiss X4)
