Hi! I'm new to the site and I am looking for some help. I am getting my F100 on Wednesday and would like some advice as to what would be a good general use lens for me to purchase. I also would like some advice as to what would be a good lens for me to get for motorsports photos. They will be close up shots for the most part. Thanks for any information in advance. Doug
Congrats on the 50/1.8 - it's a great little lens, and my recommendation as a multi-purpose all-round lens. I enjoy a lot working with it.
Did you know that apparently more than 70% of all award winning photos are taken with a normal focal length lens? A striking fact considering the vast arsenal of wides and teles around.
Later - or whenever your budget permits - you might want to consider something wider than the 28mm of your zoom. I can recommend the 24/2.8 which I use a lot. It is wide enough to make you work slowly and carefully without being obstructive.
I have also heard well of the 20mm but haven't tried it myself.
