How to choose a lens for my first DSLR?
I am new in the world of photography. I bought a Canon 60D camera. With my camera I have no lens. Now I am really confused. After one day research I decided to buy a prime lens Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM. But I am not quite sure is it intelligent decision or not? I am little bit confused about this lens. Is it good for portrait photography? Looks like I am in trap. I am interested to buy mid range lens with reasonable focusing speed. Can any one give me a suggestion which one should I buy?
Here is my consideration points--
- focusing speed within 2 to 3.
- Prime or zoom lanes any one would be OK. I am thinking of prime lanes because of the it's image sharpness. But I am not sure. (Give me some suggestion)
- 20 to 150 mm zoom will be enough for me.
- I am student I do not have huge amount of money so cheaper and good quality lanes will be affordable for me.
Any suggestion would be appreciable. Thanks in advance.
