Can you recommend a good lens?
Feb 21, 2014

Hi all, I've just got myself a 40D body, and I have no lenses at the moment, I'm just borrowing off my friend.

I quite like the idea of a prime lens, using the EF 50mm f1.8 at the moment, it works well, no IS though, I like IS.

How much more usable is this lens to have over say the standard 18-55 that people get in the kit.

Also looking at other options as opposed to the standard 18-55 f3.5-5.6, how is the 17-55? Quite fancy the 15-85mm, how would this one single lens compare to say having both a 50mm prime and a 18-55?

Also thinking of a good medium zoom lens... something like 70 - 250, how does that compare to that basic 70-300?

A macro wouldn't go amiss... tbh, I'm not sure what I want it for at the moment, a bit of wedding/event/street photography would be great, maybe some portaiture.

Not looking to spend L series money at the moment. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks, D
