Random shots at a halloween party. These first 3 I bounced my flash to the wall to my left and yes, it was as green as the wall behind them! It was my ATTEMPT at still using a colored wall and just fixing WB in ACR. I'm still semi new to this and not a pro by any means.

As you can tell, my weak point is group shots. Haven't attempted to better these yet. ISO was so high so couldn't open up aperture anymore.

This is after she bit a glowstick and it ended up in her mouth, so she ends up rubbing her eyes and it was all over her face. Noone knew what happened but when I walked in and got a whiff of her face I knew exactly what it was! She was ok, called poison control and all. She did get sick and her eyes burnt.

guys/gals -

i see alot of people say get the 28-75 for FF and 17-50 for crop sensors.
is there any real reason not to get the 28-75 for a crop? unless you have a lens that covers that range?

i need a short (wide) zoom, and really both the 28-75 & 17-50 fit the bill and are in my price range.
the 28-75 used fits my price :)

but i am having a tough time with the decision.

i like the wide end of the 17, but the 28mm would suite me fine also i suppose. (but i have the sigma 30 1.4)
but i like the longer reach of the 28-75mm since i already have the canon 50 1.4 (but i also have the 85 1.8 )

from the pictures i see here it really doesnt matter on a crop as it performs quite well, it seems to be more of a how wide do you want or how much zoom do you want.

one thing i discovered about the 17-50 in testing 2 lenses at the local shop was that it was really soft @ 2.8, and had a yucky low contrasty haze to it. but when stopped down it cleared up nicely.
and i also had horrible focusing issues. i would not have purchased either lens from them i would have ordered a new one.

they did not have a 28-75 for me to test unfortunately.

so i guess my question would be is the 28-75 as soft wide open and does it have the low contrasty look to it wide open?

i have read here and there that the 28-75 is actually sharper than the 17-50, but can neither confirm nor deny that since i have neither.

I loved this lens on my 400D, now I have a 5D and I often think it is too short. It is always a matter of what you like to use. I don't shoot wide so for me it was no problem.
