I'm in need of a good walk around lens, the thing is that I'm on a tight budget.. I've got $500 to spend tops... The lenses I have now are: Canon 50mm 1.8, 10-22mm, 55-250mm. I have the super wide angle end covered and the telephoto, but am in need of something in between. I would love the 17-55 2.8, but it's a bit too expensive for now... Here's what I've been looking at:
Canon 85mm 1.8 $400
Sigma 17-70mm 2.8-4 $470
I like to take pictures of all kinds of things, architecture, wildlife, potraits of my 1 year old which is why I'm interested in the 85mm 1.8. I'm just worried that 85mm will be too long... I'm interested in getting the Sigma because it covers a good walk around range, but I'm just not so convinced about the picture quality in comparison to the 85mm 1.8 from what I've seen in the threads... Any advice? Thanks.
