A very important tip that I will always keep in mind when buying camera lens is that “never scrimp on glass (professional photog’s term for lens). if you can’t afford to buy the best yet, wait even if it takes a year for you to save on it. and then buy.”
That quote is from my workshop instructor. And I agree with him. That’s why even if it takes me a year or more to save up on a wide angle lens, I’ll wait. Who knows? Maybe by then another model might come up and it will more affordable? (Yea, in my dreams.)
