I have a Tamron 17-50 1:2.8 and would like to get another lens. Don't know what type of lens this is more useful for, landscape? Perhaps I just not using it correctly and still practice on it. Well I haven't done much photography and this is not my everyday job so I don't use it as much as I would like to. Also my wife, lets me practice on her, but only when she wants to. The kids have no choice when I tell them but won't last long. I think they do it on purpose, lol. I guess no reason why I can't use a doll or similar.
As mentioned, perhaps from my inexperience I am limiting myself. Would like to have photos where I can blur the background considerably. Hopefully making sense and not just rambling. What type of lense would be helpful for this? I have seen online where some suggest 70mm and above. Others I have seen using up to 200mm.
I am using it on a Canon 80d. Maybe not the greatest, but compared to the old XTI I had, for me it is way better. For me, I would like to stay within $300-$500?? But I guess that will also depend what lens can really be useful to what I am looking to get, if they are realistic.
Thanks for the help.
