I’ve owned the Canon 600D for about three years now. I still only have the kit lens because I didn’t think I was ready to buy a new one and I have always been unsure of what lens I should invest in. I think now I’m ready to spend money on a lens but I’m not sure which one to get.
I take all kinds of photos but I like shooting portraits the most.
I guess I will need a lens with wide maximum aperture maybe f/1.8 max that gives me beautiful bokeh. Although a lens costs a lot so I was wondering if I could buy more of a "multi task" lens.
Since I live in Iceland there is beautiful landscape and nature wonders all around me so a specific portrait lens is maybe not enough.
So I’m looking for a lens with high aperture for taking portraits, a bright lens that can take photos in low light so I can use lower iso, a lens that I can still shoot landscape photos with and a lens that I can zoom even just a little bit if I’m taking family photos. Does this lens even exist?
Is there a portrait lens that I can use for shooting other things fx. photos of the northern lights?
I’m basically looking for a "general purpose" lens, but still focusing mainly on portrait photography.
