Great camera and lenses combo for around $1000?
Nov 8, 2012

Hi, I asked another question about what were some good cameras for a beginner/intermediate. But this time I'd like to hear some camera lens combos. I'm more towards the intermediate side since I've been shooting in film for a couple years now. I also want good quality lenses. I really want to stay away from the kit lenses (18-55 and 55-250). I'm going to do mainly portraits and action photography. I've thought about getting a Canon T3i with 70-200mm f/4, 50mm 1.8, and  possibly a good walk around/travel lens. That should total up to around $1300, and $1700 if including a travel lens. As for Nikon, I'm thinking about a D5100 with 50mm 1.8, Sigma 70-200, and a travel lens. That should total to around $1500 or $1800 with a travel lens. What are some camera lens combos that you know, or use? Any recommendations are welcome, however I am more leaning towards Canons and Nikons. Thank you!
