You ever try this lens with an infrared filter for portraits? Seems like it'd be a good match
Just got a used Canon Rebel XTi for Christmas. Still rocking the kit lens, but it's all good. Saving up for a 50mm 1.4 Prime or a 70-300 Telephoto.
I actually just purchased both the 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS and the 50mm f/1.4 Prime last week.
I also have an XTi and have used the kit lens for ~2 years. Those are both good lenses from what I have seen so far from them.
The 50mm prime is just an amazing fast lens and it's my first dive into prime lenses.
Awesome, that's good to hear... I have a specific purpose for each lens, so I'm going to need to hurry and get them. The 50mm f/1.4 is for some concert photography, the Telephoto is for the Indianapolis MotoGP race coming up. I'm pretty excited to expand the lens collection as well, they seem like good lenses to start one with.
