One good lens vs several cheap ones? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
And therein lies the problem with buying a bunch of cheap lenses before you know what fits your shooting style and habits. Now you're stuck with too many options, and none of them suit you -- why people don't shoot with the kit lens until they know what they need is something I will never understand.

thing with that logic is you don't know what you want until you try it. But I don't feel bad, all in all, I only have about $400 invested in all the lens's I have. I'm lucky to live in a big town with 2 pretty big art schools, and people always drop out of photography majors when they find out the only way to make money with a photography degree is start your own wedding photo buisness, which are a dime a dozen, so I picked up all my gear dirt cheap, I get equipment, they get beer money, it all works out.

That's the wrong approach IMO. You're supplied with a kit lens that's quite capable, and when you find out that you need more speed, different framing, etc., you can rent something to see if it fits your needs.
