Best DSLR lens for creative artsy photos of my wife & I with historic monuments in the back?
Feb 14, 2013

This is our honeymoon (but on a budget unfortunately). We currently have just the basic Canon 1000D/Kiss F and can borrow the Canon 550D from a friend. Now we would like to rent one or two lenses so that we can take some cool creative blurry effect shots.
So firstly which camera should I take: Canon 1000D versus Canon 550D? Should we cough up the money and rent a Canon Mark III 5D?
Secondly, which lens should we pick? Something like the Canon EF 28mm F1.8 USM or the Canon EF 35mm F2 IS USM?
Thanks a million!

Canon EOS 1000D (EOS Rebel XS / Kiss F Digital) Canon EOS 550D (EOS Rebel T2i / EOS Kiss X4) Canon EOS 5D
