Eric, how do you find your Sigma 18-50 lens? I recently got a 300D, but being new to SLR's, I just went with the kit lens. I hear people on here and elsewhere saying it's not up to much, and people like yourself seem to have the Sigma.

Sorry to contact you like this, you can email me ianatansteydotcom if you don't mind.

cheers
ian

ps
well done for so many comments! And always decent, constructive comments too.

Thanks Stu, glad to hear that you like it. Smile

Ian, my choice of lens was dictated by my pocket. Considering the useful zoom range, it's not too bad a lens, although it's unforgiving as regards sharpness. It appears to work best in ideal conditions, but that goes for all lenses. I never found a lens I really liked, because I often want the impossible. On the 300D it is sharpest when flash is used from about 4 feet or so. For the money, I'd say it's a bargain. If you don't push it beyond it's limits (which I often do) it will do a wide range of subjects reasonably well.

This is great, Eric. One of the many good things that can be said about your images is that they are never predictable! You have a superb eye for the unusual but photogenic.

Thanks Eric. Money is a factor of course. Having got a 300D at a price I thought was too good to refuse (500 inc kit lens and 256 flashcard) I'll now no doubt start accessorising!

I keep coming back to this shot Eric. I'm not sure I "like" it but I sure admire it. It feels as if it ought to be under Photo-journalism. Thinking back to the song and looking at the image it feels like a powerful societal comment to me.

One of your most thought provoking shots for some time
