Hi, first off I love your site. I'm trying to get back into photography and haven't decided on a subject to photograph yet. A while back, for financial reasons, I sold my kit lens and 50mm f/1.8 lens. I ended up borrowing a friends Tamron non-VC 17-50mm lens to photograph my wife's products for her jewelry business. It's great for product shots, but not so much for taking photos of my 3 year old running around (probably the non-vc part). So for someone on a budget, is the T2i kit lens (I think it was EF-S/18-55mm IS II) still a good lens to walk around until I decide what I'm going to photograph, or is there something under a couple hundred dollars that is better? I see the 18-135mm is selling on Amazon for 300.00 cdn which is oddly the same price everyone is selling it for on craigslist. Is there something in between?
