Patagonia Adventure _ Help! T3i + what lenses?!?!?
Sep 11, 2012

OK. So I am a total noob. Like, I've spent the last 2 days reading everything off the internet... and, am now completely overwhelmed.

Ya, I have a budget... i don't know what it is, but i'd say it's def. under 1,500 - including camera.

So. Right now, I am thinking of getting the t3i (I'd get the refurbished t2i, but $75 savings just doesn't seem worth it).

So then I need some lenses. As the title says, I am going to Patagonia... I want a good wide angle... those are expensive... also, I need to be able to take 'normal' photos... so, here is the lens line up I am thinking about...
Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras - Canon
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens - Canon
Tamron AF 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 SP Di II LD Aspherical (IF) Lens for Canon D

Does this make any sense? Because it is what I am leaning towards right now. I am really psyched about the wide angle for the ENORMOUS landscapes down in Patagonia... so that is where I want my money to go (well, that and the actual camera itself).
Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
