I am looking to get a good telephoto lens for my Canon Rebel T3i camera. I want one with a low F-Stop but yet at a reasonable price. What would be a good one for me. Other things to note is that I would be potentially using it for studio photography. I am a college student so not an extreme amount of money to throw around, but at the same time I do realize that I'm going to have to part with a big chunk of money for this purchase. The more information on the lens, the better. Thanks for the help!

For a decent 'pro' lens, Tamron makes a very nice 28-75 F/2.8 for a reasonable amount ($500ish). Sigma's 24-70 F/2.8 is around $900ish. I usually use my 85mm /F1.4 for portraits. Canon has a 85mm/F1.8 for $400. Their F1.2 version is over $2K.
I'd say start with a zoom and see about where you use it most and then see which prime is closest if you need lower than F2.8. The DOF on the 1.4 is amazing.
