Hey everybody -
Well, long story short, after having to sell off a good chunk of my gear to pay off some auto repair bills (stupid deer...), I'm left with a camera body and no lenses. Now that my finances are back in order, I'd like to pick up a good general purpose lens or two.
As far as budget goes, I'd like to stay around or under $1,000. I've been looking to used 28-70 f/2.8L lenses, which from what I've seen so far will eat my entire budget. Alternatively, I was thinking of splitting the budget into two lenses - a cheaper ($500ish) lens with a similar focal range as the 28-70, and grab a used 70-200 f/4L, which obviously would give me more flexibility overall...
So, working with $1,000 (give or take a couple hundred), what would you guys do in my situation? Definitely open to any suggestions - not dead-set on one lens or another. Thanks for the help!!
