Currently I have a Canon 500d with a 135mm soft focus lens. The lens is really beautiful but; I don't use the soft focus feature EVER, I only bought it because it was a 'budget telephoto lens', and I just can't use this lens for portraits, you have to stand so far away. I'd rather just use a 50mm 1.8 - which is what I'm getting in replacement! So obviously I can't just have the standard 50mm lens as my main lens. So I need another lens to use which is good in tight spaces.
BUT - I have hardly much money. Therefore I need a lens which really isn't much money, but sharp, has a wide max aperture - and is excellent in tight spaces!
Budget is probably around... £150-£300 (maybe a little more)
Any help guys?

Looking at the sort of work you do, This would be the ideal lens for you, Almost fits your budget, Gives you f/2.8 for the arty stuff, Wide angle for tight spaces too.
Personally If you buy this lens, Chances are it would be all you need in most situations.
I recently bought the sigma lens as a replacement to my kit lens and as a general walk around lens. I agree that this lens will be all you need most of the time. It is F2.8 upto about 35-40mm. Very sharp and great colour
