Covering all bases?
Hi - I currently have a macro, an 18-55 and a 55-200 lens. I did have a 70-300 but that broke!
I am looking to improve on my zoom lens and also want to be able to do wide angle shots. I have a number of options, but wondered how readers / users covered the range from 10mm up to 300/400mm. I was thinking of getting a 10-20/24 mm wide angle and then a zoom up to 400 so I don't have to carry about a lot of kit. However, I also want to avoid heavy lenses.
Then there is a camera shoulder strap. Has anyone got or tried one of the Black Rapid shoulder straps? And if not, what good shoulder straps do you use?
I know I want a lot (!!) but as this will probably be the last time I buy any new equipment for a while I want to be sure I get it right!
Thanks in advance!
Unless you get a mirror lens, anything around 400mm will be undeniably heavy.
You didnt mention your budget, so I'm just going to have to guess.
as you said, a 10-24mm
A Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5
And a 70-300mm
Those should cover all areas, OR you could drop a bit of image quality and get a Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 DI-II (IF) LD VC Macro Aspherical (lots of words lol)
Covering all bases
Thanks for that advice. I shall certainly look at it.
