Which lenses should I buy?
I work in a school and teach Audio Visual studies. At the moment we have 6 Canon 600D's all with the kit 18-55 mm lenses. We are looking to get a couple of 70D's or 80D's as well as one A7s ii in the near future but desperately need some new glass to put in front of those sensors. I want to try and get several different primes for as cheap as possible so that we can make our range as diverse as possible.
I want to start by buying 2 or 3 Canon 50 mm 1.8f lenses to try and help teach the kids about using a shallow depth of field and why using a wider aperture is preferable to a higher iso. I need advice on the next lot of lenses to buy.
The most important thing is to try and buy 6-10 new lenses for roughly $3,500 and quantity is sadly preferable to quality.
