Should I invest in a new camera body or new lens?
on Dec 19, 2016 at 2:28:09 am

I have a Canon Rebel T3i that I bought over two years ago. It has been a good little camera, but as I have learned more about it over the years I have discovered things I don't like about it. This includes the fact that it doesn't autofocus during video. I have gotten some pretty cool portrait and landscape shots on it, I usually use the older (Pre-June 2015) Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. I am ready to step up my photography in many facets, but am conflicted about whether to just invest in a more expensive lens or a new body. I essentially see many portrait style photos that have a much more professional look to them than mine have been yielding (better color composition, more shallow depth of field, etc.) How much powerful could my T3i be with a pricier lens? Or, what would the benefits about updating to a better body (maybe along the lines of a Canon 70D) be? Just looking for some ideas about the pros and cons of each. Thanks.
