Since there seem to be a few camera pros on here I was hoping someone could help me with a lens purchase decision.
I currently have a Cannon Digital Rebel and I am looking for a good lens to take portraits and up close & personal shots. I have heard from a few people that a 50mm lens is good? Any thoughts, tips or comments are appreciated. My budget is around 400.00 - 500.00
Well... you mentioned the 50mm and for $75 you cant really go wrong... its a great lens but obviously its a prime. With your budget the lens that Jeff mentioned would be a good purchase. Also, Sigma makes a great 70-200mm f2.8 for around $700... they also make a 24-70mm f2.8 for closer to $400. All depends on what focal range you are looking for.
