Hi everyone, I am new here and sort of new to photography, I have been shooting for over a year, but it has been spotty and am now just getting into it and learning what different film speeds do and aperture and shutter speed. I currently have a film Canon Rebel K2 with the kit lens 28-90mm, it has gotten me good shots, but after reading some posts on here I found out about the 50mm fixed lens that I plan on getting and now am wondering about a zoom lens. On BH photo video's website I found a Canon 75-300 mm for $180 and a Tamron 70-300 mm for $190. I shoot more landscape than portrait, some sports thrown in there as well. I shoot a lot at Disneyland when I go and have improved my good to bad shot ratio. I have worked up to the point where I don't put my camera on auto mode much if at all anymore, mainly use full manual. Would either of those lenses be good for my applications? If so, which of the two would you recommend, I searched here and read some of those posts, but I also found that it depends on what the individual shoots most as well, so I figured I would ask as well as introduce myself. By the way my name is K.C. I appreciate any help with this. This looks like a friendly forum from what I have read, so thats good, not a hostile type place. Thanks again.
