Hello! I am currently shooting with the Canon 50D, and I'm using the lens that came with it. (18-55 and opens up to 3.5) Anyway, when my images are zoomed in to 100%, there is never any area of the image in perfect focus, even if I close my aperture down to 15 or so. My questions is, is it because it's a not-so-good lens, or is it a limitation of the camera? I have been saving up money to buy a better lens, but I'm really not sure what kind to get. I still have under $1000 to spend, but over $500. Does anyone have any ideas? Edited to add: I'm not as concerned with having a lens that opens up wider, I'm mostly concerned with image clarity. I have tried many things, including tripod, really fast shutter speed, freezing with flash, etc. Thanks!
