I am looking to get a new camera lens for my Canon 550D before moving up and getting a new camera body. I thought I will get a new lens to get used to that lens and improve photography before investing in bodies.
So for the time being, I have the twin lens kit that everyone gets with their cameras and the nifty fifty (50mm prime). I was thinking of two options:
Canon 24-105 F4.0
a new 17-50mm F2.8 (Sigma or Tamron) lens to replace the kit lens.
I mostly do landscape and abstract photography (trying to get into sports and wildlife as well - but zoom lens is way out of the budget for the time being)
I can extend my budget to 1k, but would prefer to stick closer to the 500 dollar mark.
Can anyone recommend me a good next lens to buy.
