I have been using a canon 500d with the standard 18-55mm for quite some time and intend to upgrade the lens as the zoom range is too limiting. Will generally be using it on travels to shoot architecture and landscapes scenery.
I'm looking to get a versatile and lightweight zoom lens, preferably less than 500g. Budget under 1k or thereabout. It'll be a bonus if it's f/2.8 with a focal length below 18mm.
Which lens will suit my requirement? What focal length and aperture would u recommend? Is Canon or third party better?
Many thanks in advance!
