Buy Lens Extenders or save and buy larger lens?
I need sound advice from all who are willing to share. The more opinions, the better. For starters, I’m fairly new at photography and don’t have a ton cash. That probably describes quite a few forum members.
Would I be better off to buy a couple of lens extenders to get me started, or save my money and buy bigger lenses? Eventually I’ll buy the lenses anyway, but to get going quickly and inexpensively would the extenders do?
In the long run my goal is to have a small but well rounded assortment of lenses that will cover most photographic situations, but duingthe the next six months to a year, the most I can afford is $2,000 to $3,000.
What are the pros and cons of Lens extenders? What’s the difference between a Lens Extender and an Extender Tube? Will most Canon lenses work with these extenders?
Here’s what I have for gear:
Canon EOS 30D
Canon 18-55, f/3.5-5.6
Canon 28-135, f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Bogen Carbon Fiber Tri-Pod
Manfrotto Gear Head
Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3
Thanks in advance for all of your input,
