if you're not seeking any of the features that dslr's offers, you should just stick to point and shoots, it'll save you from breaking the bank and the initial complications that come with a DSLR. testing out a bunch from a local electronics store is the best way to get your answer. i am familiar with the Canon G-Series though, they are compact point and shoots that have similiar qualites and controls of a DSLR. The G-Series are definitely not a turn in the wrong direction for you.

there could be others that will perform better for you, but what I am familiar with, the Canon G-series are my favorite PnS cameras

Saw this Sigma 30mm review the other day might help.

Paper roll background try Camera supplies or ebay, d.i.y
approach try an art shop or printing firm google might be
more help for something you area.

I'm leaning more towards the 60D gonna try test one out
next week looking at body only with Canon 35mm F2 or
50mm F1.8.

PnS camera have come a long way from what they use to be. If the G-series isn't in your budget or you just want to save some money, anything from the Canon Powershot line, the Nikon CoolPix, or even the Sony Cyber-shot line up will work perfectly fine for fit pictures. Just make sure you do a little post editing to get the look you want.

50 is definitely on the longer end. I have a sigma 30 1.4 and it's been my main lens for everything. excellent lens.

If it helps I have a 50 1.2L. I honestly think that this is one of the best lengths for portraits, but I find myself needing a wider angle sometimes. I think if you were to get one of the two get the 50 1.4. The 30 1.4 from sigma is not of the best lenses, but the closest you can get to a true 50mm on a crop. The 50 1.4 though is SHARP and even though it is a longer focal length if you don't mind moving a little farther away from your subject you will find this lens to your liking. But If you can try them out do so!

Edit: From seeing pictures of both lenses the 50 1.4 is WAY sharper if that's a factor.

thanks for the feedback guys, i'm gonna do a little more reading up on both lenses, i'm really leaning toward the 30mm due to the focal length. Although the 50mm 1.4 is cheaper (but not by that much) .

I don't believe the 50 is WAY sharper than the 30, though every lens is different regardless the same make. Another thing to worry about with the 50 1.4 is that it uses Canon's old clutch focus motorsystem. Tends to break down after awhile.

OK just wondering if there is a reason why I shouldn't get a 7D? I would get the 5D MK II but I would rather wait till the 5D MK III comes out. I'm upgrading from a t3i, so just wondering if I shouldn't do it for any reason.

Rokinon 8mm Fisheye is good. No manual focus, but at that mm you won't be focusing much. $290, i've seen used on CL and EBAY for $250. Check you youtube for sample video.

Muslim backdrops? try amazon / CL. A cheap kit runs you $150ish because you need a frame to prop it up

Does anyone own the canon 35mm f2. Would you recommend it? Over the 50mm f1.8?
Its 3 times the Price of the 50 is it worth it? I mainly want a small light everyday starter lense.
It will be my only lense for a while with my 60D.

the t3i/t2i/60D/7D all have the exact same sensor and none of them are full frame. the only reason to upgrade to the 7D is if you realllly need like 19 AF points. Other than that, they all take the same quality pictures.

the 50 and 35 are two different lengths. the 50 is more of a short portrait on your 60D. the 35 is a standard. I say keep the 50mm for your portrait work and save for the 35mm as your all around small light starter lens.

I used the sigma 30mm 1.4 and it was a great. The canon 35mm f/2 is lighter and i hear isn't that bad of a lens for price.
