Re: Hi All !

Hi ptitloup,

Great to have you on board the good ship Pixalo. I have been here for nearly 4 months now and have to say it is easily the most frinedly and helpfully supportive photography forum I have ever found on the internet. I have been to many that are very clique or better photographrs talk down to beginners. That is NEVER the case here and we all value each other's comments and ideas.

So and feel free to ask for help anytime, I guarantee you'll always get a helpful response.

With regards your lens, I suggest starting with a general lens that covers the range of about 18-50mm or if you can afford to go a bit more expensive, maybe a 24-70 or similar. This will give you a lens that is reasonably wide, certainly enough for landscapes, whilst also being ideal for portraits etc. The cheapest option for you is probably the 'kit lens' that Canon does, the 18-50mm lens. You could go for a slightly wider range if you buy a Sigma or something similar.

A lot though depends on what type of photography you really enjoy. I am guessing that you probably have a fairly general taste at the moment, nothing specific like macro or wildlife, in which case the above applies. If you really want to specialise at this stage I would recommend different lenses.

Hope that at least gets you started.
Cheers,
Rob
