So here we go, my first question about lenses lol Yay! Confetti! I have my little kit 18-55mm lens that came with my Canon T3, but I'm feeling and experiencing quite often the need for a telephoto. Unfortunately for me, I'm saving for both a wedding AND a downpayment on a house, so I don't want to break the bank. For under or around $250, I've found this Sigma 50-200mm and this Canon 55-250mm. They get great reviews and seem like good deals. Alas, I am completely lens-stupid and don't know for myself. I've been discussing, in another thread, advancing my photography. Will lenses like these just be a waste of money? Any suggestions if these two in particular are bad choices?
