I recently just got a Canon 6D, its primary purpose is for Astrophotography, milky way shots and attached to a scope for galaxy/nebulae (i have a 50mm 1.8 and a 14mm 2.8 rokino for the wide landscape milkway shots)..
I'm now just trying to figure out about 3 primary lenses to get that would cover most daily life events (on a small budget though, say an avg of $150 per lens max).. nothing we do in this area will be Pro/Commercial grade, so anything better than our s8 camera ability is a step up for the most part, hopefully with some zoom for kids sporting events (track, baseball etc) and indoors like birthdays with lower light at times.
I've come up with 3 choices as of now, perhaps there is another.. most of the time it will be my wife using this, so we will both have a learning curve, the easier the better, the less swapping lenses the better..
EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 stm $300
EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM cheaper
EF 24-85 cheaper
Does the 24-105 blow away the 28-135 in some way that would be obvious to a casual photo taker?
One or two above plus
70-300 non IS (astro use and steady long range pics of kids events) $98?
Its my general understanding that roughly on a smartphone the focal length for those 16:9 shots are in the 30-38 mm range, so i think any of this has us covered.. i can probably use the 14mm lens for family group shots if the f2.8 is adequate.
From what i read a fixed f2.8 or f4 is always better than say the f/3.5-5.6 for lighting? But much more costly.
I'm thinking maybe the 24-105 covers us for most events even wide angle.. maybe the best bet? I was thinking the 70-300 would do well for both areas assuming we are steady..
Any thoughts.. am i close on the thinking here.. The goal to have say one attached to the camera and 2 in the bag at most for 99% of the time.
I guess there is also a 17-40 but thats out of the price bracket and maybe not enough zoom.
Thanks in advance
