Hey all. I was wondering if I could get some opinions. I am looking to purchase some lenses as part of my first SLR setup and have read a lot of the posts on this forum on the matter. My budget roughly allows me 3 lenses, plus the $79 Canon 50mm that seems to be too good a deal to not include. I am split between several primes and a macro (35mm, 85mm, 185mm macro) and a set of zooms (16-35, 24-70, and 70-200). I realize part of my decision needs to consider quality/speed/cost of each particular lens, but I can sort that out on my own. What I am looking for here is a discussion on how to weight my selections. Do I go exclusively with the challenges and rewards of primes as well as enjoy the delights of macro and look at zooms later, or do I get the zooms for their obvious versatility and specialize with primes and/or a macro lens later. Or is there a wiser combination to be found here? Macro photography intrigues me to no end, but I am quite flexible as to whether or not to include a macro lens in my initial set up. Let's hear what you've got to say! Thanks a bunch.
