    For the 75-300mm: Not good for anything.... Its just the low price for a 300mm lens that attracts people. Its very very blur from 200 to 300mm, unless you're shooting close subjects

    Yes, agree with getting 350D. Actually, can get used from CS around $1k.
    LOL I'm fine, been wacking a few jobs here and there. Was by and large disappointed by comex today though. Lack of goodies (the babes and also offers).. 400D was super laggy, which was kinda sad since I considered getting a 2nd body, now that idea is out..

    Not exactly right. 400D has a bigger LCD to check your pic but if you dun check, it is find. I seldom check and the hi reso of 10.1mp for ppl who like to shoot first and compose in PS by re-cropping . Pretty handy...

    Spend your money this way, you're gonna get alot better photos than if you spend the extra $300 on features you don't need (which are nice to have).

    How much would a first hand Sigma 70 -300 cost? Likewise for 2nd hand. Intending to get a external flash unit compatible to 350D? What you guys recommend?

    What do you mean by it? The fair is allowing buyers to buy the 70 -300 at a cheaper price at $199/-. So do you mean that i can get the same lens at the same price but 2nd hand.

    Closest would be the Sigma 500DG Super.

    I think less ppl selling now but no harm posting a WTB. Can search for Sigma 70-300 at B&S to see some latest deals.

    If I intend to get the lens you are talking about, Sigma 70 - 300. How much it will cost for a first hand?

    Think about the sensor cleaning function on the 400D before you finally decide. You need all the help or feature you can get to reduce those dust from getting into your sensor. Also, the 400D comes with a 10MP sensor compared to the 8MP on the 350D. Review wise, I don't think it will skew until like the camera CMI. Also, investing on a 400D you can better "future-proof" your investment, i.e. prolong your investment from being obsolete.

    Errr....I would say about 18 months. That's how long Canon comes out with a replacement model, so far...

    If you're going to consider 350D, why not get a 2nd hand one? Like this set:

    http://forum.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=219742

    That way, you save even more for accessories, like lense and flash unit.

    Yup. Thanks. So sorry to you guys out there. My savings still not sufficient. However I really want to pick up photography as my occupation had allowed me to go on several overseas trip (3D2N) from Oct to Dec. So hopefully with the package that I am getting would gradually help me snapping some good shots and put the 70 - 300mm to good use.

    Still, i really precious your feedback as its improves my knowledge.
