Hey guys,

I've taken a many years hiatus from photography but am in a position to get back into it. I do not have any gear. at the moment. When I did have equipment, my favorite combo. was my trusty 1D and 70-200 f/2.8 or Tamron 28-75 f/2.8.

Now, fast forward about 10 years, I'm wanting to get into the hobby/business again. I need some helping getting caught up to speed.

My budget for a used camera is ~$1,500. I'd prefer not to spend that much but am also willing to spend a couple hundred more for the right camera.

Main uses for this camera: nature, portraits/family, sports, eventually weddings, and general landscape stuff of interest.

If some of you guys could help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!
Adrian

$1500 gets you a Canon 5D3 from Canon Refurb with a 1 year warranty. That will likely be your best bet as a generalist camera for everything.

Pick up another Tamron 28-75 F2.8 for $120 just to get started.

Very best,

My suggestion would be a 6D with EF 28-105 lens. I think they can get you started with most everything you listed. And for a fast lens, a 40mm pancake will be handy.

7D, 70-200/2.8L, 40/2.8, 24-85 = less than $1500
