Hello all, newbie question here:
I own a T2i and after ~2.5 years of shooting with the stock lens, I'm ready to buy some starter lenses and a flash. In the process of researching lenses, I've come across the highly acclaimed "nifty fifty" and the "pancake." I'm looking to maybe getting 2 lenses right now: one for portrait pictures and another for outdoors/ landscape.
I'm looking to get a portrait lens that I can use for "photo booth" type pictures for full-body and close up pictures. I've heard great things about the 50mm and it's price = instabuy. But I just recently came across the 40mm and read very good things about it. My question, for my purpose, which would be better?
The "outdoor" lens I'm looking to buy is the 55-250mm lens. I don't have a huge budget and that lens seems to provide good zoom for my price range. Thoughts on this lens? Worth it?
Thank you in advance!
