I just placed an order for 2 lenses on amazon. I bought both the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 and the Sigma wide angle zoom lens. I tried them both with a friend and I liked them. I’m hoping the 50mm would help me take indoor pictures when the room isn’t very well lit, I’m also hoping that I won’t be needing to doctor the images anymore so they won’t appear yellowish. I also liked how the lens focuses on the object at hand and gives this blurry affect to the backdrop, the blurriness is more pronounced with this lens than any other lens I tried.
I think I’m getting a good deal on the wide angle lens coz the package I’m buying also includes a vertical grip (is that what its called?), 2 extra batteries, a mini tripod and some other things.
