Re: best lens with canon mount for EA50

I recently sold my EA50 along with the kit lens. Damn I miss that lens!
It was great for shooting live performances (although a bit slow). But coupled with face detection and push auto focus, it worked great.

Re: best lens with canon mount for EA50

Serggio did say for weddings. Yes the 18-200 for sports is pretty good and if I did those I would have kept at least one.

Dmitri? Why don't you buy another one for the FS?? They are available

My only other shoots are Realty and stedicam and I use a Tamron 10-24 and just set zone focus as the DOF at 10mm is massive!!

Different lenses for different jobs. I must admit I do miss the touch focus on the LCD ..that was awesome!!

Thanks Chris,

I have the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 already. My last one to complete my set is the Sigma. I think I will pick that one up soon.

Re: best lens with canon mount for EA50

had the pleasure of working with the fujinon 19-90mm f2.9 (mounted with an E-PL adapter). would love to be able to use this lens constantly.

alas, to buy one would cost more than all the stuff I own :(

My wife is a photographer and she uses Canon Mark III and she was using the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens and found that it kind of hit and miss on her when shooting. That lens is roughly $900, give or take a few. I bought her a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 and she is in love with it and it cost 2K and i got her Tamron for my EA50. So it is a matter of what your budget will allow. I use a EF - NEX adapter and I'm in heaven with my Tamron on my EA50. I just shot some footage today for two different TV shows and the footage looks awesome compared to the kit leans i was using for the EA.
