Hello

Hi, my name is Russell and I joined today. My interest in photography really started with a Panasonic lumix DMC FS10 and then three months ago got my first DSLR, Canon 550d with standard 18mm-55mm IS lens. I have would appreciation comments / recommendations on my next lens purchase (55mm - 250mm IS maybe) and photos posted.

Re: Hello

Welcome to Pixalo Russell

Lens selection should always be guided by the type of photography you want to do rather than just getting a lens to fill a 'gap' or extend the range of your current lens(s). Sports and wildlife will (usually) require longer lenses. Portrait lenses will need to be in the 50-105 range, and landscapes are best served with wider lenses.

Macro is a whole different ball game, but macro lenses can also make good portrait lenses.

You could get a general purpose lens that will cover 18-200, or up to 18-270, (different makes have different ranges). Then after some time using this lens you will see what focal lengths you are using the most, or if you are always at on end or the other of the range and wishing for more. Then you will know where you need to go for your next lens.

Re: Hello
