I am a amatuer photographer and am going on a holiday soon to Islands in the Pacific. I already own a 50d and 17-55 IS lens. I'm wanting a zoom/longer focal length. I need one regardless anyway!
I have worked with two cameras before at once and found it easier/I liked it - the 50D I have now and with a powershot which gave me a zoom/longer focal length and which was nice and light but my powershot is now years old and playing up. What option should I take so I can have the superzoom with my wide angle lens?
1. Buy a 70-200 IS F4
2. Buy a 550D and a 55-250mm canon lens - this is what I would rather do - I don't enjoy changing lenses and then can just pull out the camera I want when needed. It can be a back up camera as well. So then I would take the 550d and 50d one with the zoom lens and one with the wide angle.
3. Just buy the 55-250mm canon lens for my 50d and change lenses when needed - and then I could afford to buy extras that would be handy/nice to have like extra memory cards, a CF filter, a good quality bag, maybe a tripod. Possibly a 50mm prime lens I could afford to get then to.
Thanks for any help!
