I need help!

Anyone have any suggestions for a good lens? I have a Canon Rebel xsi. I just have the stupid lens that came with the package. I have been doing reseach and found 2 different lenses that I am in love with. Any suggestions are helpful! What do you use?


  1. Go for the 85mm... a prime lens will *always* give a much clearer result than a zoom, plus with the f/1.8 aperture you will be able to create a nice background blur. Also, Canon lenses are always better than Tamron lenses.

    However, with the 85mm you will need to stand quite a distance away from your subject to fit them into the frame, compared to the other lens.

    Have you considered the Canon 50mm/1.8? It's cheap but gives great results.

  2. Thank you so much for the advice. I am going to look at a 85mm lens tonight. I was worried about how close it is going to be. Ahhh decisions decisions.
