2 Lenses For My SLR Camera

25 05 2008

Posted By Yousef

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.

Thank You ::: ShoSho ::: & HKR for helping me decide 🙂

Hi Everybody,
this is my first post here. I am Hungarian and photography is my hobby.
Yousef, I am sure you will like both lenses. I have the 10-20 sigma and the 50mm f1.4 version and I love them.
You might want to consider a Tokina 10-17 fiseye in the future. I just bought one a few months ago and it is an amazing lens. I couldn’t imagine that the fisheye can be this useful. I posted some pictures with it in my gallery under “Equipment”.
