currently, im using canon 1000D with my 18-55mm kit lens.
i just came back from a 4D3N trip @ KL, i borrowed my fren's 50mm f1.8, but i kinda feel very restrictions on not being able to zoom, so end up after the 1st night i changed back to my normal kit lens, thank god i did not do a impulse buy for the 50mm f1.8
but this comes to another problem that i have, my 18-55mm have quite a limitation especially when i comes to taking "night photography"
i have the intention to get tamron 17-50mm f2.8 non-vc, as i believe its a step up my kit lens and the aperture being big enuff, but would having a flash add to its advantage??
i've never used a flash before, so i would like to enquire here, before i actually commit to 1, i'm more to walkabout photography.
1.) does the DSLR actually "recognize" that there's external flash attached to it??
2.) the metering, will it be adjusted based on the lighting provided by the flash??
i know its a long post, sorry
