So I've been doing photography off and on for a few years, and honestly after starting a much higher paying job I have a total of about 3-4k, not counting printer yet, that I can spend on a new set of camera equipment. I hope to be able to sell prints of photos I take with this set, so having good enough image quality for that is my biggest concern.
I think I'd label my interests as being landscapes, architecture, and abstracts. I don't really do portraits, at least not yet.
Currently all I have is a 300D, its kit lens, and the 70-300 sigma zoom/macro.
What recommendations would those who are more experienced than I have for a good set-up? Do I need a new body or should I mostly put that money towards quality glass and a good tripod? If I can even get prints ~8x10 out of the 300D sensor I'd probably prefer to invest in lenses.
At the moment, I've been rather interested in the 17-40L, the 70-200L IS 2.8, the 100mm canon macro, and the 100-400L, but it seems like all of them add up to a bit of overlap.
Any advice would be appreciated. I may have more money to spend, but this is an investment and I want to do it right.
I would suggest Canon 10-22, 24-70 2.8L, 70-200 2.8L IS or not. There is no reason why you couldnt sell a print made from a 300D provided someone likes it and the quality is good. Also invest in other good support equipment like tripod, ball head and such. Later an investment in a better body would open up more options.
