A few years back I bought a used Canon 550D for a little video project. Since owning the camera I have completely fallen in love with still photography.
The 550D came with a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 XR Di 2 and a Canon 50mm f1.8. I live on the coast in South Wales in the UK and have decided I need a long lens so i can get some shots of surfers.
I'm struggling to find a decent long lens EF-S. Should I also look at non crop lenses? I'm a little confused as Tony says to really only use crop lenses on crop bodies for best results.
Do I invest in full frame lenses now in case I move up to full frame in the future? Or do I look for crop lenses as thats what i'm using at the moment?
I don't foresee a move to FF in the near future as my next purchase body-wise will be the 80D as most of my work is video based.
Is it really a bad idea to use FF lenses on crop bodies? My Nifty 50 is a FF lens and the results I get are amazing.
Apologies if this has been answered before.
