I am purchasing a canon t3 and would just like to know some thoughts on what lens I should spend my money on . A good lens for all different types of scenes and scenarios .

For all different types of scenes and scenarios, I'd get the $199 Pokemon 8-600 f/1.4 IS USM 3 inch 8oz model with sonic ring motor, built in teleconverter and build in polarizer. It will do most anything you need. It's all magnesium with a power zoom feature and Leica optics. For under $200, it's a great buy.

I don't think it's quite out yet though. We're all waiting.

But the really key feature is that you don't have to even be there to take pictures. Put the camera and this lens on a tripod with wheels, send it out and it does everything else:-D I can wait.
