What is a good lens (or 2) for NYC candids and city shots?
9 months ago

I'm going with the girlfriend so I'll want evening pictures with the empire state building in the back (etc.) And I'll want a lens that could be well rounded for the day as well.

For evening I was thinking the Canon 28mm because of f/1:8. For the day I was thinking Sigmas 17-50 f/2:8. I've recently read excellent reviews about that lens. I just don't know if I'll need more of a zoom to get some nice pictures. Any advice you have would be helpful. I'm a newbie to photography and this forum and this is my first time posting. Thanks.
