Well, really my next paycheck will go for a strobist starving student kit but i've already made that decision. The following paycheck is going to pay for my next lens and i need some help deciding from everyone!
I need a relatively inexpensive zoom to cover the shorter range that i don't currently have below my 70-200. The options I'm considering are as follows:
Sigma 24-60 f/2.8 (only 239.95 from amazon!)
Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 (389.00)
Sigma 28-70 f/2.8 (329.00)
Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (424.00)
Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 (369.00)
As you can see, a wide aperture is a must, the 17-70 gets in there because the focal length seems so perfect and i know it makes great images so i could forgive its lack of a constant 2.8 aperture. I'll be using this lens mostly for indoor events, and pictures of people (full body, not head and shoulders portraits) So what do you all think? Which one would be the best addition to my stable?
