Hello Everyone! My name is Corey and I am new to the world of photography and even newer to this sight so I apologize if this should go somewhere else. I also have searched for a while and haven't quite gotten the answer I'm looking for. Here's the dilemma. I have a Canon Rebel K2 (SLR). I want to branch out into some more areas of photography and would like to know what suggestions there are for a good (but reasonably priced) zoom lens. From what I understand I think I'm looking for something up to 300mm/500mm range? I also have heard that if I do get a zoom lens and then get extension rings I will be able to dip into macro shots as well? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm going to be using if for general purpose - landscapes / wildlife / live motion - anything that would be better off with a zoom lens. I also want to try some macro shots like up close flowers and bees etc. I'd like to find a reasonable, good quality lens and save up for it rather than getting bad results from a very cheap lens, but I don't need the high end stuff either - Off brands would be an option too. What do you think? Thanks for any advice I can get.
