    Default Got My 50D!

    Hi fellow CSers, I just got my 50D along with a 50mm f/1.8 and a 70-200 f/4L (non IS ) Anyway, what do you guys think of this combo? Can you guys recommend me a lens within $300-$500 that can take wide angle shots? And hopefully (not a must) cover the gap from ?-70. Was looking at the Sigma 17-70 although it overshoots my budget a little. What do you guys think of that lens as well?

    I'm sure all of us would like to see some sample "live" shots from any of your lenses - you as our fellow CSer.

    Since you have already invested on 50D why not complement with a good wide-zoom lens? Lhttp://www.clubsnap.com/forums/images/cs/smilies/sad.gif?

    Congrats!Get the Tamron 17-50.Very well known for its first-class IQ.Slightly above your budget if you buy brand new from serialsnapper or anadivine at the MO section.Second hand would be cheaper at around $500.

    Definitely Tamron's 17-50mm, if not the kit lens will do because it's quite sharp.

    Tamron 17-50 is good.. highly recommended.. i gt mine @ TCW for $570. + free filter.. friendly sales person too. let me test a few lenses. oh ya it comes with 1yr shop warranty cos its a import set.

    the 17-50 would do good around 560 would get u 1 from anadivine's MO? i dont noe whether she has any left though
    but the lens IQ is V good and 2.8 does good in low lighting

    hey guys, i was just wondering if how you guys know if a lens is for wide angle just by looking at how many mm is it. Can someone enlighten me? i'm sorry for asking but i just wanna know

    < 50mm is considered wide angle lens. However factoring crop factor of say 1.5, anything below a 35mm wide angle prime will reproduce the field of view wider than a 50mm on a full frame.

    For S$300-500, it's best to get a EF-S 18-55 IS. Unless you can up your budget, then get the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8.

    Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 a good buy(no regret).I saw some pictures taken by a pro using D80 with this lens and the pictures are really impressive.

    Any pro worth his salt will make impressive images with any decent glass.
