Choosing a new first (second) lens
1

Hey guys,

I'm an amateur who loves to take photos of everything. I love street as much as I love landscape and macro and I would surely love wildlife (but my 18-55 isn't very helpful with that).

I know people usually buy their second lenses in light of the type of photography they're interested in, and to me it is somewhat of a problem

On one hand, I could get some really pretty street photography images with a 50mm 1.8 prime lens. I'm wondering whether they are good for anything other than that, though.

And on the other hand I'm salivating over the 18mm-300mm or perhaps 18mm-200mm so I could shoot birds and generally have more range for interesting compositions.

I do carry my camera with me all day every day and the bulk of the superzooms is somewhat intimidating for me.

I'd love to hear your opinions on the matter.

Cheers,

Simon.
