Hi guys, I am a newbie here. Have been using my 550D with 17-55 f2.8 and 55-250 for about 1 month. I think this is an excellent combination and covers almost everything I need. I am pretty hooked on the 55-250 when I bring my kids out to the zoo and beaches, and also can snap alot of candid shots when I am out in the street. I think the image is amazing for a lens that is so cheap (got mine at an excellent price ). Does anyone here feel the same as me??
Anyway just want to ask you seniors, I may be bring both set up to watch my kids performance next weekend. I have a feeling that the 17-55 is not going to have enough reach to capture the performance on stage. Therefore I just want to check with you guys whether using a flash is going to help, if I were to shoot with the 55-250 there. This will be my first time shooting indoor using this lens, and I know it does not perform as well as outdoor. Flash is permitted for this performance. I have a 270ex, not sure if that's sufficient.
