I am heading to a large car show this weekend. I will be so hurt to snap 8gb worth of pics only to have a handful turn out. I will be shooting with my newly acquired Canon XSi / kit lens 17-55mm (looks like the hood I ordered may not make it in time). I also have the 50mm f/1.8, but it will serve no purpose with the amount of people attending / distance needed to get a complete car in perspective.
Hi hope your pics came out as you wished
As a dslr noob - can you explain to me what you meant by saying the 50mm f/1.8 lens would be useless for that situation?
If by a car 'show' you mean a race meeting type of thing, I think you meant because you'd need to zoom closer into the track/action - obviously not possible with this lens!
If however, you meant a 'show' as in all cars nicely parked and polished up for everyone to mull around and admire, then I'm confused
