That's gotta break a few fire codes - but great example of the kit lens!

That shot is actually pretty epic.sylpherware wrote: ↑Feb 8th, 2010 1:08 pmXSi, 18-55 IS Kit Lens, pop-up flash. Pretty much as ghetto as you can get. Not the prettiest (in terms of WB and noise), but gets the job done :p

As you can see, you can do group shots with any focal length. I recommend 24mm (L prime) due to its versatility and its image performance (very low distortion, no pincushioning, etc. -- a 24-105L @ 24mm will noticeably skew bodies on the edges of the frame)... this is of course on full-frame and if you have the $.
For a cropper, I highly suggest the 17-55IS. Yes, it's expensive, but it's an awesome lens and will save you $ in the long run (from upgrading). If you can't afford this, go for the 17-40L. I would personally stay away from third party lenses (especially sigma).

Why do you suggest I stay away from third party? Just curious.

Probably his personal experience was bad.
