Re: Need advice for DSLR for shooting my new baby

Are you mostly interested in shooting portraits? If that's the case I've got a few suggestions as that's all I personally shoot myself. Even though I use Nikon, Canon has the same equivalent lenses. For portrait work your 50mm 1.8 will be just fine for more environmental work and when your working distance is limited. When that's not the case, a 85 1.8 will become your favorite lens. They're relatively cheap (especially compared to a 1.2 or 1.4 version) and produce stunning results. Don't forget to factor into your budget a good flash and some reflectors. Good light control will improve your photography 10 times more than any body/lens combination lol.
