Hi guys, I am a newbie just started out photography as a hobby.
I am currently using a canon650D for a year and a half now. I want to upgrade my kit lens to a better lens which allows me to take better portraits at larger aperture.
As kit lens are always coupled with Image-stabilisation, I tend to take this feature for granted.
I am currently looking into
1. sigma 24-70 f2.8
2. tamron 28-75mm f2.8
Both of them does not comes with IS feature, will it affect me greatly? Is it a worthy upgrade from my kit lens?
Is the kit lens focal length(18-55, 18-135) an accurate representation of the focal length I shoot at?
I understand 650D has a cropped sensor, so I should multiply that value by 4/3.
I have the assumption that EF-S lens' focal length already accounted for the cropped factor, while I have to take into account the cropped factor for non-EFS lens, can someone correct me on this?
Thanks for the answers!
