Hi everyone. After a couple years with my Canon 300D I'm planning on getting a 30D. I've been shooting live bands, some music promo, some portraits. All in the name of getting better and gaining experience. A friend wants me to shoot her wedding in a year so I want to put my practice in overdrive until then and upgrade my gear. After buying the 30D I want to get some new lenses too. Currently I pretty much always use my Canon 50mm 1.4 USM. The only other lens I have right now is the 18-55mm EF-S POS. Haha. I'd really like to get the 16-25mm 2.8 L and the 24-70mm L. I wanted to consult this group for advice on these lenses. They are obviously pretty high priced and it would probably take a while for me to get them. Are there any Tamrons or Sigmas that are comparable? I know a lot of people recommend the Tamrons... but when I browse pics taken with them on PBase I'm not impressed... but it could be the photographers and bad photoshop skills that ruin them. Anyways... I'd love input on my query here as well as other lenses you guys and girls recommend. Is the 24-70mm with the multiplier (112mm) long enough? A sigma 50-500mm is also on my wishlist, but probably third in line. ;-) Thanks!
