I have a 60d with the 18 - 135 lens that came with the kit. I shot a swim meet the other day (from the stands) and I just couldn't get "close" enough. I'm looking to reach out a little further for some good face shots. Any ideas on lenses that would be a good step up in reach? I looked at the 1.4 extender, but it doesn't appear to be compatible with my lens. Maybe a combination of a lens and extender? I'm new to this level of photography. Budget is around $1500. How much more will a 200mm lens give me as opposed to the 135?
Thanks for the info.
