I would like to seek advice from the experts here. I am a Canon EOS66 user and I have been using the lens (35-80mm) that comes with it so far. I feel that it is time I acquire another lens and would like to hear some good advice.
May I know is the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM a good choice? I identify my needs as 2 areas : to take far away subjects and also to take close-up shots. I am thinking of getting this lens for the zooming capability and perhaps I would get myself an extension tube +closeup filer for the macro interests.
As my budget is rather tight (ard S$500), I hope such a configuration is feasible and as I advance (both in skills and $$$) then perhaps I would consider other additional lens.
Also, should I consider Sigma / Tamron /Tokina lens as well as I heard that if budget allow, then it is better to go for the original lens by Canon.
Please kindly advise. Thank you in advance.
