    Which lens to buy

    Hi all,

    I have a canon 5d with a kit lens at the moment which really doesn't take the best of pics. I will be going to Thailand in December and want a lens that will work best for traveling.

    I want to spend about a grand on a new lens, can anyone recommend the best for traveling.

    I also sell my images on istockphoto so need to get some descent shots.

    Thanks,
    Lance

    Get a wide angle lens and a 200mm telephoto lens. Don't forget to get a decent flash.

    Look at the stuff on these pages:

    You can buy generics like Sigma or Tamron for Canon or the Canon branded products:
