Okay, I am buying a 30D probably middle of next month. I want the 5D because of the better sensor but not sure if I can afford it. First question...Where can I find GREAT deals on these cameras? Second...I need two basic lenses. I want the 50mm 1.8 just because it's crazy cheap and a great piece of plastic. My main work is people, I photograph engagements, portraits, weddings, birthdays and seniors, proms, cheerleaders etc....all trying to capture people in their natural settings. I am on a medium budget and wanted to know if the off brand lenses are good enough.....for someone starting out, or should I just go for one lense and get a canon? I have been shooting these pictures with a Kodak Easy Share...for about 2 years (I know crazy) but everyone loved the shots, so I know that if I upgrade to this it can only get better. I don't want to hear that I should know what I want the lense for and why...I do know that...I'm just looking for the best two or three lenses out there for my type of work! Thank you in advance!!
