    right, i`ve been asked to take some photos for someone leaving party. it`ll be at night, loads of people there, and i just have to walk aorund and capture some moments. now i have a 300d, it suits me fine. but im looking for a new lens, because my kit lens doesnt seems to be focusing properly on auto mode anymor. i need one that is a good all round lens, thats good for taking people pictures. one that works well in lowish light as well.

    any suggestions?

    :)

    A good, budget low light lens is the Canon 50mm F/1.8. Look around it can be had for betwee £60 - £70.

    If your looking for something for more general use on a low budget then it would be your kit lens that will be doing the tricks on that I think.

    Got enough memory to shoot all night? Please don't leave it in Auto mode!!
