Please help me with camera/lens decision.
Nov 2, 2012


I am getting back into photography.  I am clearly an amateur.

  • My budget is $1500-$2000
  • I mainly take family portraits with occasional travel/sunsets
  • Exclusively JPEG with little PP.  (skin tones,blemish correction)
  • I am looking for good subject isolation with pleasing bokeh. 
  • Also good colors and contrast without too much PP.
  • I do not need razor thin DOF. (only one eye in focus)
  • It's nice to have a sharp lens but my family complains about showing every flaw with DSLR

I was considering a T4i which I can get new on EBay for $650.  That leave around $1000 for a nice

lens.  I was considering the 24-105 F4.0L.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!!
