I am getting a Canon 7D in the next week or so - and I am wondering what, in your opinion, would be the better lens for me to get. I've researched for hours and have come to the conclusion that in the end, everyone has a different favorite. However, when you are looking to buy - and they come in the bundles with an extra lens, which would you suggest I get? They are all with a couple hundred of each other and I want it to take portraits in a studio and some outside. The options are 28-135mm with a 70-300mm, the canon 7D bundle with an extra 70-300mm lens, 28-135mm with an extra 55-250mm, OR a bundle with an extra 55-250mm. I am fairly new to the professional photography world and upgrading from an older rebel and want to use the investment as wisely as I can - any advice?
Thank you so much for all your input and advice - it has been really helpful. To answer the question why 7D - I have been taking portraits for people as a hobby for a couple years with a Rebel and need an upgrade. Just recently I've decided to kind of take a leap of faith and invest some money, upgrade my camera and get some more lighting and backgrounds, etc for indoor portraits. Thanks for the suggestion on money for lighting - it can cost a bundle, I have already spent $ on that! I have read a lot of articles, magazines and internet articles on the 60D and 7D and basically, the deciding factor was the consumer reports said the 7D was the best - so I figured - if I'm upgrading - I may as well go there. I understand a lot about photography and I have an art degree and took some photography in college - but this is a hobby that people have been paying me to do for awhile. I have no bought a 7D yet, so if anyone thinks a 60D would work better, with better lens - please share! I do like the idea of a better built camera - not plastic like the 60D. Any thoughts? Again - I appreciate your help!
