I'm probably going to pick up a 6D body soon, but I'll be very limited on funds for a while and am wondering if you guys can recommend a very inexpensive lens. I prefer zoom and am wondering what would be a good all-around lens.

I don't shoot from a distance. Most of my shots are very up-close semi-candid portraits using natural light. I'm just not into strobes, shooting sports, etc. When I start shooting for a few bucks here and there (mostly friends at work), I can rent a few lenses or whatever else I need. There are a lot of options there.

I do shoot a lot of architecture and landscapes too, along with people. The kind of "candids" I do are people who know I'm there, occasionally pose, but pretty much do their thing while I take pictures.

I'm also thinking of just putting a prime on it, perhaps a 50mm 1.4 or the 35mm. I'd love to get L-glass, but I'll have to save up. I really need to get going on full frame. It's time. I'm ready.

Thanks for any advice.

FWIW: I'm currently using the the EOS-M for what I'm doing, but I don't want to get rid of it. I love this camera. However, I'm ready for full frame, and the 6D is exactly what I want (I use center-point focus anyway).

If funds are tight, 5dc with a nice prime is better option. I would take than any slow f4 zoom. 5dc is old but would save you $700 to add L quality lens like sigma 35mm f1.4, sigma 85mm f1.4 or an L like 135mm f2. Goof lens will make more difference than latest gen body unless one is shooting very high ISOs. Just my 2 cents.

Wait, a rebate deal is happening?

Right now I'm seeing the 6D with kit lens (24-105L) or $2499.

Is there a better deal out there? If so, I'd love to grab it.


My original consideration was to get the 6D body for a little over $1300 from the Canon Loyalty Program. It's about $1500 refurbished, but through the CLP it's another 10% off. Then I was going to just find a way to scrounge up some money for a lens or two for utility before saving again for good glass.


Is the rebate directly through Canon?

Yeah, seriously. She is very beautiful. She has an Angelina Jolie type of look to her, but is much better looking than the actress. Nice hair, too.

I imagine she is very easy to photograph.

Tamron 28-75 can be had cheap and is optically a pretty good lens.
