    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and shooting with DSLR. Been reading on this board as well as random searches on yahoo/google.

    I currently have the Canon T1i kit which consisit of the 18-55 and 55-250.

    Primarily my shooting is focused on car, both moving and still. I mainly use the 55-250 for these shots. Looking for recommendations as to what lens other car photographers can recommend. But I'll do a search on it as well.

    Anyways, forums great so far :thumbup:

    hi and welcome :mrgreen:

    car photography ?

    i think those two would suffice

    if you feel that you need to get wider
    get a wide lens .. 14-24 or a 10mm?
    if you go to the track. maybe a longer reach . 300m-400m? :p
    a flash or two for still photos maybe useful as well

    (these suggestions dont come from experience, but from what i see from other peoples posts :) )

    post your pics! :mrgreen:

    (cool . you know how to do your own searches :thumbup: )

    ^^^hey thanks! I will get some photos up tonight and post them in the C&C sections.

    I appreciate the feedback. I am not at the level of 300-400MM lens yet, but its good to know.

    Not really into shooting with flash...don't know why, just not haha. Guess its b/c I like to mess with exposures and f/ to get the amount of light I need in a photo.

    I have the Sigma 10-20mm for cropped camera sensors only, this is a phenominal lens and highly recommend it. Also in my stable is the 105-400mm Sigma which I find I have used at the track and motorcycle gigs, this lens is fast focusing and has a great optical stabilizer that helps you in tracking. I have even shot planes moving at highspeeds with this big daddy, however it is for a full frame sensor so its really tight at 105, but a plus if you wanna reach further then the actual 400mm on a full frame body. If you have any questions on how they shoot and quality build and what not let me know I shoot both very often. Also if you have any other questions on the Bodies or Lenses in my stable anyone feel free to hit me up. I have also shot on more then what I have listed so lets convo...
