I photograph a lot of dogs, and there are a lot of lenses that will do a nice job for you indoors. I used to own a Tamron 28-75 f2.8, which I really liked. It's a perfect range for indoor pet photography and falls well within your budget. The only reason I sold mine was that I also used it outdoors, and the slower focusing had become a problem. Indoors, though, it's terrific.

Probably my favourite indoor lens for my dogs is my Canon 60 mm macro lens (f2.8). Its close-focusing capability opens up some interesting creative possibilities. I also have a friend who produces great images with his 40 mm pancake lens. Both are well within your budget as well.

Good luck with your choice!


Gear: Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24 f/4, Canon 24-105L f4, Canon 70-300L, Canon 60 macro f/2.8, Speedlite 580 EXII, 2x AB800

Where are these available for $600?

My mistake, had not seen the post of $600 limit. I retract that recommendation.

Read the posts stating they had never used a prime, and that 85 was too long of a length.

Wishing to capture fast moving dogs, etc, I recommended a fast and wide prime, the 60mm macro may still be too long for their needs.

I would recommend the 17-55mm given their options listed.

While the 24mm and 35mm L's are great, they may not be needed.

The 35mm IS may be the best prime to meet their needs and their needed budget listed, if they want to try a prime instead of the 17-55 zoom.
