I just got a new Canon 50D (body). Still mulling over whether to get the Canon 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM lens... It's $1600 (CP) and I'm not sure if I need something that high-up in quality.
What would be a recommended lens for a complete beginner? Something versatile and hopefully, economical.. Lol. Is the 17-55 lens really worth that much? I heard that it used to be $1250, but the guy was telling me the price has gone up (you mean that happens?? Lol) because of the JPY. T.T
Argh, so frustrated now. I've got my first DSLR (and a good one too! =p), but no lens to play with yet! Argh, some good advice please! =)
