So i'm getting more into video, I got a Gopro2 over Christmas Break from my job and enjoy filming and love editing skiing and snowboarding. I want to move up to the next step, and believe a T2i is a good next step. Per reading the NS's forums, I wanted to skip the kit lens and get a Tamron 17-50 on ebay or craigslist.
Well I found a guy on craigslist that wanted to sell his used T2i for $500, and when I said I wanted to shoot snow stuff, he recommended a 14-40L which he said he had and was willing to sell for a good deal.
I'm just wondering the difference between the 17-40L and the 17-50, I was pretty content on the 17-50, but if he really wanted to make it a package, it would be nice to have everything together, as I would still have to find a 17-50 elsewhere. I liked the Tamron bc it's only about $350 on ebay, which would save me some money to purchase a stabilizer, fisheye, ect in the near future. Thanks and please help me out with info, and sorry for the long story, just giving some background.
