Planning on buying either a Canon 60D (or maybe a 6D) and using it for a year before I upgrade to something better.
I'm trying to decide what Canon lenses I should buy that will be the most useful but also the best bang for buck. For example, I am currently considering the 17-40 f/4 as a wide zoom, 24-105 f/4 for pretty much everything else and a 35mm f/2 IS for low light.. I figure these 3 lenses cover a pretty good range, the 24-105 is equiv to about 38mm which isn't exactly wide which is why I'm also considering the 17-40.. I think the IS on the 24-105 will come in handy for static hand held shots as well as the IS in the 35mm f/2 which will serve as a low light lens that has the benefit of IS too.
Anything else I should consider before buying this stuff? I'm having a hard time deciding whether to go for the f4 stuff for now or whether to invest what I have into something like a 24-70 Mk II, it doesn't have the IS.. But I don't want to feel in 12 months like I should have just gone with some f/2.8 glass instead. I like the idea of having IS, but is it viable to use IS for static hand held shots or is a rig essential? I'll be shooting mini docs, interviews that sort of thing..
I'm also considering the 6D as a possibility for its low light performance, however I'm leaning towards the 60D as it's so affordable and I'd still want to upgrade to something above the 6D within the year since I'm getting more work.
Sorry long post.
