Realize that this is purchasing advice from a 16 year old- according to her sig.. Probably does not have a job.. Does not earn her own money.. Spends mommy and daddy's money instead..
Really though- "go get all L-glass ! " ? Fairly sure that you can buy some top notch glass from other manufacturers that would fit both crop and full frame bodies.
Wow, I'm speechless. I bet you feel REALLY empowered about telling off a teenager. Did you sleep good? I bet you just feel on top of the world right now. Pathetic.
Let me tell you how WRONG you are about me. I'm too busy involved with school, something you obviously weren't according to your grammar and lack of any type of correct punctuation, to have a job other than doing freelance photography in my free time. I play varsity sports, have schoolwork, and am involved with a bunch of other clubs and organizations to have a set work schedule.
And if you read all of my signature, you'd know that I only have ONE lens and ONE camera body. Why? Because I bought it myself! With what? NOT "mommy and daddy's money" with money I earned from doing photo shoots. So I do in fact, earn my own money. My parents buy me the necessities I need for school, home, and that's it. They don't just throw money at me to buy lenses and camera and useless crap because they're saving up for me to go to COLLEGE, where I'll still have to get some type of scholarship or financial aid. You know what college is right? It's basically school after high school where you choose what you wanna do in life and study it, and pay a bunch of money. I haven't lost you have I? I just wanted to make sure you're clear on it and we're on the same page because all the assumptions you made about me are blatantly wrong.
I have a T2i and I've had a T2i for over two years! It's the only camera I've ever owned, I never even had my own point in shoot, and I got my T2i for my birthday 2 years ago. And that was ALL the photography equipment my parents bought me. Also, if you're going to "quote" someone, at least use words they actually said or wrote. When did I ever say "go get all L-glass"? I didn't. I said you should TRY to get all L-glass and listed the reasons why she should invest in glass like L-glass. The reason why I only have one lens is because I bought it myself and right now I'm saving up so I can buy another one in a couple of months. I don't just go to my parents and say "I want a new lens. Give me your credit card."
And what's wrong with taking advice from people that are younger than you? I'm giving her actual helpful information based on what type of equipment I have, how long it took me to get my gear, and how I feel about it. I'm actually being relevant to what the topic is and answering her question, I'm not bashing other users through an online forum and typing up lies out of my butt. So next time you have an assumption to make, or just anything to say in general, do the whole universe a favor and don't. This is the first time I ever acknowledged you existence and I know I sure won't miss you and your big, loud opinion on these forums. I hope you have a GREAT life and I never hear from you again.
