Lesson learned...go to the bathroom BEFORE you have to hold up 10kg of ballroom dress.

It's snowing. Again.
C'mon, it's almost April. Where is spring????
I get one "drag me down for a week, then miserable for two more weeks" cold per year, at the beginning or end of the season where I have an activity crash that drains me.
This year, this is my third cold. WTMFF. I mean, they're reasonably "high-functioning" colds, but still. Ick.
Ask that stupid groundhog.
Are there no follows in this bloody town who dance am-am Standard?

Pssst come move to adelaide I need me a leader.
Whine: want to start doing some dance photos while I don't have a partner, but lenses are expensive. Really don't want to buy a lens that costs 4 times as much as my camera did.
I've been working with a tiny-ish lens (ie 35-80mm) for the most part for my project, mostly because light is the issue and this lens is faster than most of my other zoom lenses that my parents have gotten for me or have handed down to me. However, in the US there are places that rent out lenses for a small fee. You can see if you really need the lens you want (I'm guessing a telephoto as those are the ones that are hugely expensive) or not. IDK if they have something like that in AU.
Or look for used equipment. I don't know if B&H services you, but they have a great used market and a really good reputation, where you can use a lightly used lens for much less than what new ones retail for.
um...if you are of a compatible age and skill level and live close enough, there could be

sigh, bought what looked like a full fringe dress from Shall We Dance designs, turns out it was missing two rows of fringe in the middle. It was on clearance so they're saying it's a final sale.
maybe stone that area as if it is a belt?
Or add an actual belt if it is for syllabus
Wish you lived closer, sigh.
Austin, Texas - lots of us here!
I've been out of serious photography for a while, but back in the days when I was slinging a 35mm, the rule of thumb was that third-party lenses cost about half of OEM lenses of similar quality. For Minolta A-mount, which was what I used, Sigma was the third-party manufacturer. I had two of their zooms, a 35-70 and a 75-210, and those did the bulk of my shooting. I had a Minolta 50mm for low-light situations and a Minolta 28mm fisheye (which I later sold; I didn't find much use for it).
