if you have $200 to spend I would narrow it down to a couple choices....
1. Kit lens + Canon 50mm f/1.8 or veven better, a vintage 50mm f/1.4. Look at the Pentax
2. Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 It is variable aperture which is a downside, but from what I hear, its significantly better then the Canon kit lens. Not as good as the Tamron, but will get the job done.
I would probably go with option 1 because I love my 50mm. Very nice optics for such a cheap lens. This whole edit was shot on it. And no this not self promotion.
Because I'm from the suburbs, not Compton. And you look like an idiot when you are all thugged out in the parking lot waiting for Mom to pick you up in her Lexus crossover.
