I'm seeking an opinion from the pros out here who has more experience here than me. =)
I currently own a 40D + Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 (a very good copy too)
I should here say that I am on a limited budget!
I am considering getting a 85mm, sell the 17-50, and then get something perhaps 12-24? or a UWA
1) Could you guys recommend a UWA that would cost be below 600, I perfectly ok with second hands, but I don't really have time to keep trading and trying.
2) Would I lose out in terms of versatility if I make this change?
3) I could work with any other suggestions that may be more versatile, I prefer to have a fast n good portrait lens in my setup. Budget for lenses MUST BE under 1k max.
Type of photography plans:
I don't major in photography, but I sometimes shoot events as a freelance photographer (rare now unfortunately, time constrains).
I will have to be a blogshop photographer on-and-off as some of my relatives and friends own blogshops.
I plan to direct and have my friends help me shoot my pre-wedding pictures (budget constrains unfortunately!) with my set. Not going into wedding industry though.
Personally my interest is in portraits.
I will be using my camera for travels in the future (2 years later at least) as my gf likes traveling. I have little traveling experience unfortunately.
Based on the above, what will you guys recommend?
