Hi, this is my first post here and I'm very, very new to DSLR. Recently, I bought a Canon EOS 400d Kit II, which includes the 17-85mm lens.
My questions are:
- is it really necessary to get a filter? If so, which kind(s) and brand(s)?
- what affordable(less than $1000) lens is good for portraits?
I'd really appreciate your kind advice. Thanks.
