If you can only afford one lens the Canon 17-55mm F/2.8 IS is a brilliant all rounder lens.

Beyond any technical concerns DSLR's have rejuvenated my creativity - forced me to approach events with a fresh perspective. That's always a good thing. Best of luck and let us know what decisions you make.

Agree. For video this is probably the best size to start off with. I am not sure about Tokina and Sigma lenses compared to the Canon, but yes to the size.

Excelent choices for the money.

However the Canon 50mm is fine for photography but the manual focus ring is small, and it's not so easy to work with for video.

You will probably need a vintage alternative with a smoother focusing ring for video.
