Replacing my kit lens
11 months ago

Hi everyone. I'm very new to photography and absolutely stoked about getting into it.

I picked up a D7000 on Black Friday and would like to replace the kit lens.

I have already purchased the 50mm 1.8 and can really notice the difference in quality of shots. Especially at the corners on wider angles.

I really like to do portrait/family photography and would like a better quality wider angle lens. Long term I am saving for a 70-200 VRII 2.8 but the price is a bit too steep for me right now and it doesn't have the wide angle I'm looking for anyway. So I'll settle for a cheaper one now to learn with before getting the 70-200.

I'm thinking I should get either the Sigma 17-35mm 1.8 or Sigma 17-50mm 2.8.

What do you guys think?
