Re: seeking some advice regarding a purchase

I have a Sigma 18-125 as my "walk-around" lens. If I have time to swap lenses, I prefer to use a Tamron 17-50 because of the larger constant aperture.

I also found out that I would use whatever lens I have on the camera in a spur of the moment situation. A shorter focal length tend to be better in these situations. You can do quite a bit of cropping on a 16MP sensor before running out of pixels.

Another suggestion is not to buy too many lenses at a time, especially when you buy your first DSLR. Practice to find out what you are really missing.
