I'm looking to invest in a really good zoom. I normally don't care for zooms because as its said by many they tend to make you lazy. But given that I want to start doing more photojournalist shooting, there are times when getting closer physically isn’t possible. I also do videos and I've read that zoom lenses are not good with productions like that, but its not a big deal, I already have a 50mm lens that I use for interviews, but since I'm looking for another lens to use as a potential second view shot, it would be nice if it had good video quality, however my main goal in finding a new one is not necessary for video but for photography. I’ve notice from looking at most of the Canon zoom lens they’re not good in low light, the range tends to be stuck in the f4-5.6 range. It would be nice if I can find a lens that can do macro/upclose shots as well but also function in low light. I have a Canon camera, I don’t mind buying a non-canon lens, I’m not snobbish when it comes to that, however I don’t want to spend 500 bucks on adaptors either. I understand I’m not going to get everything I want in one lens, but I can get close it would be nice. Any suggestions for a lens that leans somewhat towards my needs? Thanks.
