Are you Canon or Nikon? If Canon I can lend you mine to play with (LENS!) as I won't be using it for at least a month.

I've read some very good things about the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 (I believe it's the one Brettus uses). 300 - 350 mark, I guess.

wondering if anyone have good recommendations for a indoor lens , for photographing people. as I'm not a fan of flashing (its to fit a Canon 20D)

is this 50mm f1.8 ok?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Canon-EF-50-.../dp/B00005K47X

or would I be just as well off with the standard canon f/3.5-5.6 with IS?

http://www.crazycameras.co.uk/index....FckTzAodpCVzKg

or should I save up for this Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 w/o OS

http://www.acecameras.co.uk/asp/web/.../1/product.asp

cheers

I am about to buy the 50mm f/1.4. Pretty much as fast as you can get without spending huge cash.

If you had a Nikon, I (and Filipe) would send you down to Grays of Westminster as they have some awesome 2nd hand lenses in stock. 10.5mm f/2.8 is next on my list.

Yup, just checked the website, there's a 50 mm f/1.8 and a f/1.4 going for very decent prices.

And I'm still kicking myself for not buying the f/1.8 last January when they were going for 75 new. Dumb@ss.

It's a Sigma 105mm f2.8. I know you aren't going to pizza but let me know next time I'm likely to see you and I will bring it along.
