Just a simple question, I've registered on here so I can get some advice and information for my future purchases.
I have a 450D, the 18-55 canon lens that came with it and the 70-300 canon lens (Jessops deal)
I am now looking for a wideangle lens so have been looking at the Canon, the Sigma and the Tamron.
As I'm an amateur, but keen, I'm leaning towards the Tamron as it seems to do what I want and seems to be the best price.
basically my question is, is there a level of snobbery about using Canon lenses with Canon cameras or do people genuinely rate Sigma/Tamron lenses? Trouble is, you go to most camera shops for advice and they try and sell you some specific brand, i.e. what they sell!
This is a genuine question, not a debate. I just want to know if I'm wasting my money on going third party, or are the Canon lenses actually worth the extra spend, especially for a wideangle? I will always just be a keen amateur and usually self confessed 'all the key and no idea'.
thanks in advance,
