Looking to buy a new lens. Trying to get a decent setup before we head out on a Mexican cruise next May. Right now, I've got a 450d with grip, the 18-55 kit lens, and a Sigma 50/1.4. Looking at either a 24-70 or a 70-200. Eventually want both, but can only afford one at a time. Think I would get more use out of the 24-70, but already have that generally focal length covered...eventhough it's with a kit lens. Don't have anything in the 70-200. Do I replace the kit, and leave the void space of the 70-200...or get the 70-200 and tough it out with the kit, even though I won't be using it all that much? We took our daughter to the zoo last weekend, and I kept saying..."Man, wish I had that 70-200." But how often do I actually need that length? 4 times a year...maybe.
Thanks for the input.
