I have a post in the EOS camera forum on the 7Ti and 77D. My wife wants to move up from her iPhone. https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php?t=1502140
Having decided on the 77D now I have to pick 2 lenses for her since I won't be buying a 7Ti kit. I have been scouring through lens reviews and the DXOMARK scores for overall ratings and more importantly the sharpness ratings. To get her some reach I think I am considering the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. It was released in just 2013 and scores better than similar reach Canon lenses. I'm having trouble choosing something shorter, something that starts around 17-18mm out to 55-75-85 or even out to 135mm. At the preferred price point we are working with The Canon choices are pretty much the:
EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Any opinions and experience with the image quality of these lenses?
Any suggestions on other brands for any of this?
