comment How should I approach people to take their portrait?
I recently, did some "street photography" (Sort of, since i'm a beginner :-) ) but the subject was never asked in order to have their photo taken. So I have no problem going out there and point the lens at people. This time I would like to ask permission to take a more intimate photo through portraits of the people i choose). For a more visual explanation, this is the set on flickr. flickr.com/photos/lukeagius/sets/72157629929414476 (Feedback also appreciated)

My initial thoughts exactly Rene! Plus I can keep the 550D for extra reach as well because of the 1.6 crop factor!

I agree with what you say regarding getting a quality lens for the 550D. These where my initial thoughts. I'm pretty happy with the image quality off my 550D. For the time being I won't be needing high FPS rates and although I'm sure the 5D handles and feels much better and far nicer and the 550D is a little plasticy i'm pretty happy with it (for the time being that is hehe).

Initially I was thinking the same way you did Mike. But If I have plans to upgrade to full-frame eventually, is it a good idea to spend money on EF-S lenses? I mean I can save up and go for upper quality L lenses right away and It would be a better investment in my eyes since I can use those L lenses on both crop and full-frame bodies. As far as the 50mm, I was thinking of eventually getting the 1.4 which is good enough for me and not as expensive as the 1.2 and it fits on both.

Budget is not a problem, since I am able to save up the amount money for either one or the other.
