I'm looking for some expert advice, as I have been to many stores in Singapore and received inconsistent and competing information.
First of all, I own a Canon 450D, EF-S17-85 F4-5.6ISU lens, and EF 50F1.8II lens.
I purchased the kit back in 2009 when my first child was born, and have enjoyed using the equipment, however the EF-S17-85 has caused me a lot of issues, and has been repaired by Canon ($$$), and now does not auto focus. Due to this, I've just stopped using the 450D, and prefer using my Iphone 5 (which I'm not proud of).
I want to get back into using a DSLR, and want some advice on whether I keep the camera body, and buy a nice piece of glass, or whether I dump the whole thing and purchase something new, (I would like the ability to take video on my DSLR, but not essential).
I do take care of my equipment, (dry box etc.) so am very disappointed that the EF-S17-85 has caused me some many issues, and it has put me off Canon, however I do not want to write off my investment in the camera body just yet.
I want to take photos of the children (hard to keep them still), take good photos in low light (indoors), and take outdoor photos when I'm on holidays, (i.e. temples, people, buildings). I have done a lot of research and believe the following lens will suit my needs:
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM
Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Thoughts from the experts on the above, or do I have it all wrong?
Thanks in advance!
