get the 30mm. its sharp, has a good build, and is fast.
I currently have a Canon 50mm 1.8 (XSi) and I want a little more flexibility, preferably on the wider side.
1) Canon 28mm 1.8 USM
2) Sigma 30mm 1.4, I've heard there a lot of bad copies out there?
3) Tamron 17-50mm 2.8, unsure about this one, is it worth it? Are there bad copies?
4) Canon 17-40mm f4L, slower lens but I'm assuming the sharpest out of all my choices.
the only thing is some tend to have focusing issues. but if you do have that problem just send it to sigma and they calibrate it for you.
get a 60D or a 7D
I want to shoot some videos of some ideas that I have.
What's a good camera to shoot video with? I heard the Nikon D90 is good (even though I am accustomed to using Canon not Nikon), while most the high end point and shoots tend to not be 1080p from what I understand (If not I would get a Fuji x100).
If I have around 1,000-1200 to spend (at the most, not saying that's exactly what I want to spend), what would be a good weapon of choice?
t2i or d5100
what do you plan on shooting and whats your budget
About the t2i, I would be getting it body only. What would be the best recomended lens to get with it?
