One reason I've seen why a lot of people like using battery grips is because they think it will make others think they have a pro camera.

Both lenses are good the difference is that the 1.8 is really cheap and is a great second lens for anyone just starting out. The f/1.4 is much more expensive but worth it, it's much higher quality and has a smoother faster focus. But both lenses excel in low light situations and can give you amazing depth of field.

This article I found before I asked this question actually talks about the 50mm but I didnt think it would be to useful in a car show environment. http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the...ou-should-buy/
But what really makes the cannon wide angle better? The only real differences I see is the cannon has a stabilizer and a different f stop (I think thats what its called)

Re: Photography

The best thing about the 50mm lenses is that they are light sponges. They absolutely soak up light. Which means you can easily shoot with available light in situations that would either be impossible or require cranking up the ISO to get a shot with other lenses. In addition to being good at low light when you do have plenty of light to play with they get really really sharp once you start dialing up the aperture and can take some beautiful shots. They are considered a mild zoom especially on a crop sensor camera so they are not good for that up close fish eye look that seems to be really popular lately in car show photos. But if you are willing to take a few steps back and shoo away some spectators you can get some really nice shots with a 50.

But as far as the wide lenses that you are looking at, the STM design is awesome, it is one of the quietest and fastest focusing motors. They were actually designed for the newer cameras that shoot video so they can continue to focus constantly and very quietly. But that is a huge plus because if you ever decide to upgrade to a body that can shoot movies you'll already have a lens that will work with it. Plus what that lens loses in an f stop to the Tamron it easily gains back with its image stabilization, and it's more than $100 less expensive. The only real down side is that it is a completely brand new lens and there are no real world reviews to compare it against the well proven Tamron lens. Honestly it's up to you but if It were me instead of getting that Tamron wide angle lens I would pick up the Canon 10-18mm and a 50mm f/1.8, and still have a few bucks left over.

I am not going to lie a good wide angle lens is also something that I have been missing and I have almost talked myself into buying one of these too. Just gotta come up with the funds.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was.
Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me.

*not my pic and not sure who took it*

As much as I want to leave Albuquerque, a view like this makes it a little easier to stay - Sandia Mountains that overlook the city.
