Helping a friend out who is going to be purchasing a Canon T1i and is taking a trip to South Africa for a wildlife photography trip. Only problem is she can't afford all the 70-200, 300, 400mm L glass.
Any suggestions on which telephoto lens she should get on a budget for a crop sensor? I was thinking the 55-250 would be a pretty good bet....what do you think? Think that's enough reach? Anything else out there pretty cheap? Unfortunately don't know her budget yet, but I know she can't spend $1k+ on a lens
Maybe a kit lens to pair it with for some wider angle/general purpose shots as well?
