    I was using the flash but the pics were too stark and cold and didn't represent what the whole vibe of the night was.

    Here's some more from the same show

    Okay guys/gals. Need some help here. Making my wish list for x-mas. I'm really in the market for a new camera lens for my Canon Xsi. Currently, I am just using the kit lens but would like to finally make an upgrade. Looking for something in the $500 range...maybe less. I mainly like to shoot outdoor shots and some close up (indoor shots). Been playing with the flash quite a bit as well. Any suggestions? I am looking at this one currently:

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Tamron-17-50mm-Aspherical-Digital-Cameras/dp/B000EXR0SI/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3UA0RO324EUKW&colid =XD5OZOA583SS]Amazon.com: Tamron AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di-II LD SP ZL Aspherical (IF) Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo[/ame]


    Thanks for any help you can throw my way. BTW...I am an amateur photographer...not professional by any means.

    It ain't sexy, but:

    EOS (SLR) Camera Systems - Standard & Medium Telephoto - Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens - EF 50mm f/1.4 USM - Canon USA Consumer Products

    You will thank me later. Everyone should have one of these (or Nikon's equiv) in their kit bags.

    Put a stack of extension tubes behind this lens and find some good lighting, and you've got a pretty kick ass little macro setup, as well.

    I can vouch for the 1.8 being a blast to have on the camera. It certainly takes some time to get used to because of there being no zoom, but it really makes for some nice photos.

    Grab the 50mm, put it on your camera, and go out and take 100 careful captures with the camera on full-manual. Guaranteed you'll be able to see your skills improve from capture 1 to capture 100.

    I'd see if you can get a cheapo 50mm prime on ebay (should be under $100 if you get the 1.8 rather than the 1.4) and get the Tamron as well. A great walkaround lens on the cropped sensor. Great build quality and very sharp.

    I have the $100 Canon 50mm lens. I'm looking for an everyday lens that I can use. Something with a little zoom to it.

    The difference between the $100 1.8 and the 1.4 may (will) astound you.

    I s'pose it depends on the mount. I've compared the 1.4/1.7 in the Sony/Minolta mount before and the law of diminishing returns was very much in evidence IMHO. The 1.7 is already razor sharp. The 1.4 was slightly sharper wide open, had slightly better bokeh, and that's about it.
