Re: New dad seeking advice on lenses.

I think kit lenses are good value to consider, 18-55IS & 55-250 IS. I definitely recommend second one as an option to 70-300IS due to its size and value. I have both and I can see that 55-250 is selling around $200 as a refurbished or in Craigslist. For low light Sigma 30 f/1.4 might be an option for a crop camera esp indoors. Also I bought a used Sigma 24-60mm f/2.8 for $160 from ebay since the kit lenses were too slow for indoor shooting and I found the zoom range better for portraits. Other f/2.8 zoom lenses from Tamron/Sigma/Tokina might be a better option than the 17-85mm.
