    When u say fish photos, are u referring to underwater photography? Or thru the fish tank?

    Anyway, what's important is the lens that is used, not so much the camera body itself.

    I think most users here learn how to use their new cams by trial and error, or join photoshoots with fellow users. It takes more than just classroom hours to even begin to fully utilize a DSLR.

    if its solely for taking aquarium photos .. i don't see the need for a dslr ... but thats just my opinion..

    anyways bear in mind that u mostlikely won't be able to use flash .. .or would have to put your lens right up to the glass if u want to avoid reflections ...

    Pretty heavy investment just for shooting fish. Maybe you may want to consider a prosumer cam since you have not use a SLR before. You can save a fortune this way and still get your shots.

    A good DSLR with a cheapo lens (low quality) will not get u anywhere. Better off using a good prosumer camera.

    for DSLR, u need to buy a macro lens lor... normal lens just can't focus with near distance...

    for prosumer, can do near macro, if need be, can even pop a closeup filter in...

    btw macro lens ain't exactly cheap... thats something you have to take note...
