A Canon T4i is on the way with a 18-55 kit lens. I photograph as a hobby.
I am in need of some help on picking out a few lenses.
As an Electronic tech by trade I often photograph circuit boards for reference, and need something to get in a little closer than me G9 can do. I also photograph quite a few items that I sell on eBay and need to get a little closer so the buyer can read all text on the product or box.
I also photograph food, bugs, flowers, animals, model airplanes, air shows, and my son. So I will need something for portraits as well as some sport capability outside.
60% of things I photograph will be indoors. The lighting isn't that great so some low light performance would be helpful also.
I have a budget of around 1200 dollars. I want to get the most bang for buck.
Any help and insight would be very much appreciated.
