Beginner photographer needs lens advice
7 months ago

Hello,

I am primarily interested in portrait, boudoir, fashion photography.  I have a  Canon 60d, 18-55 kit, 35mm canon 2.0, and a 50mm 1.4.

I am wanting a good telephoto but not sure what direction to go.  The canon 70-200 would be a waste because its a crop sensor camera.  With my prime lenses I already have a 80mm (50mm x 1.6) and  a 56mm (35x1.6).  I was thinking the sigma 50-150 but that seems redundant since my primes cover the focal lengths that I would most often use for portrait work.  Though it would be nice to have a zoom in many cases.  I could sell my primes and buy the sigma to replace them and then buy something else.  Any recommendations?

thanks.
