Canon 17-55 f/2.eight or Canon 24-lxx L f/two.8 to replace Tamron 17-50 f/2.8
I’one thousand a newbie here, then bear with me…
I’grand an amateur photographer, but I want to better the image quality of my photos. To that end, in February, I upgraded my onetime digital Insubordinate XTi to the 60D. I am nonetheless using my Tamron 17-50 f/ii.8 with the 60D body, and getting decent pictures. (I also have a basic Canon 75-300, and a Canon 50mm macro lens)
But I’thou ready to upgrade my workhorse lens. I just feel that my pictures aren’t as precipitous and life-like as they should be–peculiarly anything close upwardly. The Tamron seems to exercise well enough with landscapes, but seems to lack on indoor twenty-four hours to solar day family shots, and close-ups.
I shoot mostly landscapes, kids sports, and many family pictures–posed and candid. I am starting to acquire how to employ my 60D to information technology’southward fullest by finally getting away from shooting machine, and playing more with f-stops and adjusting for exposure etc.
So, my dilemma is this, do I just replace my Tamron with the equivalent Canon lens? Or practice I actually, really upgrade to the 24-lxx L lens?
Does an L lens really make a difference with prototype quality? Does the Catechism 60D do justice to the 24-70 lens? (I’yard not certain I understand crop-sensor vs. full frame cameras).
Then, I’m hunting for opinions….
