What lens should I get for the Canon T4i?
UPDATE 12/11: The price of the T4i with 18-55 lens has dropped, I expect this is the last price drop we will see this year and if the T4i is like the T3i last year it will actually increase in price again during the new year. T4i with 18-55 is now $599 (Lowest Price on Amazon) | T3i with 18-55 is $599 (Lowest Price on Amazon) The savings are now small enough that I believe the T4i is the best value for all. If you want to shoot easy video with the T4i buy the T4i with 18-135 for $799 (this includes free SD Card and backpack) Bundled deal with 55-250 is also possible. Ask me if you have any questions.
The new 18 – 135 STM lens is excellent and when purchased with the Canon T4i, a good value, that makes the T4i with 18 – 135 kit the best value If you are the type that desires one lens to do most of your shooting. If your budget is tight go ahead and get the 18-55 kit, the kit lens is fine to start with and as you shoot you will learn what is important to you and you can begin to look for lenses that will fill that gap.
