Help, newbie here,
Currenly my plan is to trade in the 18-55 kit lens which come with eos1000D to the 55-250mm IS lens so that i can have a better zoom.
However, some friends commented that it might be difficult to take close potraits, as the minimum distance is 55mm.
I would love to have the 55-250mm as i go travelling often and would like to take close potraits and scenery. Is it true that this lens cannot take portrait if i am standing too near?
Hope some one can clarify my doubts.
