    For Newbies trying to narrow down the ultimate lens combination and pick up some tips:

    Both the Tamron and Canon headquarters are close to my house, and they both offer tons of free clinics where you can bring your camera body and try every lens they have to offer. Thought this would be good info to post in case you have a lens manufacturer that is close to where you live.

    They also offer clinics on the road. Check below for a location near you.

    These things never come down to Florida. And when they do, they stop around Orlando, hours away from me.

    Thanks for posting though.

    That sucks. If you have a good relationship with your local camera store, try talking them into hosting a clinic for Canon. They just have to call up their local rep, and tell them that they're interested in being a host. If they can promise 10+ people, they'll set something up.

    Ooh, this is really weird. Sigma is right by my house too! Everyone seems to be from Long Island. Lucky me. :lmao:

    I'll have to call them tomorrow and see if they offer clinics as well.
