If you want something to complement your 17-50 I'd look into one of the 70-200L lenses. As for video, I don't shoot it so I'm no help there, sorry.

What video subjects? There as many different focal lengths for video as there are for still photography ;)

The sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS would be a nice compliment to your 17-50

A nice prime might be a good choice for that if you don't like using your 17-50 for video.

Bulls**t !

get good glass and learnt to use it first !

a good photographer can make good photos with any camera, a crappy photographer will continue to make crappy photos even with a 1Dx or 5d3
glass will help take better pictures, once the good (FF compatible EF glass, not EF-S) is in place and the owner is skilled in its use, then a step up to FF is a good idea

Your Sigma 17-50 or the Canon 17-55 are the best bets. Get a Tokina 11-16 for low light, indoor work. Also look at the z96 hotshoe led for panels for lighting. There is a also a pair of rechargable batteries with charger on ebay for the z96 for $20. They're better than regular AA's since regular batteries will give a subtle flicker when they start to get low. The rechargable set will simply go dead and the other will be done charging when it happens. I'll link you to them when I get home.
