Thanks for the great feedback!
When you say "too tight", what exactly is meant by that? You'll have to excuse me not knowing the terminology. I am still a dummie when it comes to cameras.
Would their be a different lens that would benifit in the long run and still keep a low apature? I looked on Wolfcamera.com and notices under the Cannon lens section there are "Sigma" series and others. Are these just older models of Cannon Lenses?
Visited the Cannon website and browsed the site for other lens but most other are quite pricey. Im looking to stay between $400-MAYBE $600.
Thanks again for all the help!
