    Dont get mad......

    Ok......i have been wanting to buy some new lenses for my Canon 550D but in the back of my mind i keep thinking that evenutally my lenses wont fit a new model'd camera
    (so i been told) and that just renders them useless.
    I dont have thaaaaat much money to throw around so i want really invest my money correctly the first time.

    Should i maybe try a nikon camera see how they feel/work etc and maybe switch due to every lens being able to fit nearly every camera?

    Did i hear wrong?

    Any help or advice would be much appreicated because i would like to buy some new lenses and kick my photography up a gear.

    Btw the dont get mad thing was to prevent the Canon vs. Nikon argument

    OK, as far as I understand, you want some lenses that will carry over to a possible FF camera.
    I don't think either Can or Nik will suddenly change lens mounts from their current EF/EF-s range and (NIK equivalents) to something outlandishly incompatible.

    Yes, you either "heard" wrong or understood it wrong.

    Just get lenses that will suit a FF camera. They will also suit a crop-sensor camera, such as yours. In Canon brand lenses, go for the EF specification. That will allow you to use them in
    a future FF camera as well as your present camera. For Sigma lenses, make sure you go for the ones specified "DG" and not "DC". Mind, all this is just so they will be FF compatible.

    Now, I hope I didn't understand you wrongly.

    Am. (Or should that be Um?)

    I havent been thinking right lately, so many friends and people talking about upgrading and getting new lenses gets into my head.
    In a way i want a new camera because i havent really taken any photos i truely love or that have taken my breathe away so to speak, and i think that
    if i buy a newer camera all of a sudden my shots will become amazing aswell.

    I think i will maybe invest in a new lens and keep on going, i seen some photos shot with the 550d and they are amazing, i just need to keep practicing.

    Thanks ammerat

    OK. Put all that talk behind you - from friends, etc. The camera you have is NO SLOUCH! Cripes! Give it to me if you don't like it, with emphasis on "GIVE".

    NO, what you think with a new camera will NOT happen.

    This is the place you ought to be - AP. Talk, ask, post up pics. You will look back on this thread and giggle, one day. - Soon!

    OK, you've got the twin lens kit. So have many others here on AP. How many laments do you hear from them?
    Yep! Thought so. Well, back to basics, which is essentially - take pictures with what you've got.
    Heck! I started with an Agfa Box camera, which is similar to the Brownie Box that someone posted a thread about just yesterday.

    Compared to that, you've got a Galaxy Class Starship!

    (PS: Don't worry, I won't get mad. I'm just quite starkers!)

    It all takes time, this thing called photography. We might know the image we want to capture, then have to learn how to do it.
    I've got a drill, circular saw and a hammer, tomorrow I'll knock up that new shed we need. Guess I'd better learn how to build a shed (or how to use that saw safely )
    Anyway.

    EF, not EF-S if your after Canon lens. Though I wouldn't worry to much, if it's a good lens you buy, it can usually be sold again for a reasonable price. And in the mean time you're using it.
    The road to good photos isn't equipment based. Take you time and practice, practice and practice. Try different settings, try different things. Delete is easy and cheap with digital.

    They both make good cameras that help us take not so good photos.

    the first step to realising what gear you actually NEED!
    (as opposed to lust for!)
    Nikon D800E, D300, D70s
    {Nikon} -> 50/1.2 : 500/8(CPU'd) : 105/2.8VR Micro : 180/2.8ais : 105mm f/1.8ais : 24mm/2ais
    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC
