Thats just made my decidion even more difficult. cheers guys !
I've just got kit review overload at the moment. I really don't know what to do for the best
If I stick with the 60d for now .....
Looking at some reviews it seems on the 60d unless I spend £600+ on a lens upgrade the kit 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS is as good as any and at £80 with the kit looks like a good option. My concern with that is I would VERY quickly decide I needed a lens with a longer range. I did think maybe the EF-S 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM would be a better option but at £600 ish it's not a cheap lens. If I'm spendign that much do i then go for the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX IF HSM at £630 instead ???
THEN I got to thinking if I'm goign to spend an extra £600 should I stick with the kit 18-55mm and get a 70-200mm f4 L at about £450 instead. That would give me even more options. But would I regret not gettign the IS version ????
Can anybody tell me what to go for ?????
Apart from thatg I have 1 other question. I want to get a filter for protection. I always had a skylight filter on my 35mm lenses but reading the PR article on filters it seems to say a UV filter is a better option with digital? Also I seem to remember there only really bign 1 or 2 options on skylight filter and they were quite cheap. The Hoya Pro 1 UV filters are about £60-£70
is a UV filter a UV filter ? would I really notice the difference between the Hoya Pro1 and a £4 UV filter from ebay ??
Sorry for so many questions but everytime I think I've found an answer I seem to find another article tellign me different.
