^ i just picked up a manfrotto 7301YB for $150. it's really compact and it supports up to 7.7lbs. quality is good for its price point and comes with a carrying case.

Id keep the 18-55 until you can afford a better wide angle zoom, you never know when youll need it. But definitely sell the 55-200 and definitely cop that 35mm.

So I just started shooting about a month or two ago and finally got the hang of it and learned terms and concepts about a month ago. I'm currently using a Canon Rebel XT with the standard 18-55mm kit lens and a Tamron 55-200mm/4-5.6. Right now, I'm just shooting as a hobby; nothing too serious (usually just pictures of friends and family and the occasional "artsy" close-up).

For a while now, I've been meaning to pick up a new lens, since I'm getting pretty bored of alternating between the macro and kit lens. I want a lens that'll look sharp and could be used on a regular basis.

I've been wanting to cop a fisheye, and I finally found one that is somewhat within my budget (I was ecstatic when I saw the price, since most fisheye lenses I saw went for $400-1000):
Rokinon FE8MC 8mm/3.5



I've also heard good things about the Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens



So what do you guys think? Which lens should I cop? The fisheye is about $100 more than the 50mm/1.8 lens. Any other suggestions?


try and get the old 50mm, the mk1, the focus ring and construction is wayyyy better

Coping the dirty 30 (sigma 30mm) tommorow.

Been reading posts about it all over the net and couldnt resist. I regret selling my old 35mm 1.8 and I cant afford the nikkor 35 1.4. Hopefully mine wont have any problems but I know that with the d300s you can adjust how the lens focuses.

^ nice man i hope you get a good copy. you're really gonna love it! been using this lens a lot and it is just great. people say the auto focus is pretty slow, but in real world shooting its actually really fast and quite reliable. also the bokeh and colours from this lens are fantastic.

YO YO YO FAMILY. I need a flash for my T2i. Nothing to expensive. Budget - 300 bucks maybe? Something that will last. What do you guys suggest?

I'm planning on selling my Sony A290 for another Sony Body, Sony A55 or Sony A560, still unsure. What would be a 'competitor' against the A560 or what would it be comparable to?

Nooby photographer in need of answer ASAP
Okay, so long story short; I wanted to pick up a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens for my Rebel XT. I found a good deal on eBay, but in the product description, it says it's for medium format cameras, which to my knowledge, has something to do with film (and obviously, mine is a DSLR).

But being that the lens is an EF lens, it'd still be able to fit onto my Rebel XT, correct (EF-S mount)?

I saw one go for $80 +s&h on eBay (every penny counts). Too bad I wasn't home when the auction ended. smh
