Hi friends of CS,
I'm a total newbie to DSLR and I'd really appreciate if anyone would kindly help me out in selecting a new lens. Currently, I'm having the default(18-55mm) lens and would like to upgrade to a better performing lens.
I'm a plane spotter and would really love to shoot jets, sunsets, clouds and birds/animals/mammals(humans). I read on some forums that Sigma lenses are great and cheaper, I'm not sure how true is this and recently, I saw this 55-200mm and 70-300mm. I'm not sure if those lenses would fit me in those categories I want to shoot. And my budget for the new lens is around $300-$450.
I'd really be grateful if someone would recommend me a lens that could fulfill those categories of shots I want.
Thank you all!
