I love shooting people; they're so interesting! But, I also love shooting ANYTHING interesting, and that includes a lot of things that are NOT people. I'm getting the sense, though, that both of those lenses are good all-around shooters and that I would be happy with the results of either one.

I've still got some cameras (and other items) that I haven't sold, so perhaps once I sell off a few more things my budget will increase a little.
