    now i have money.... dunno which one to choose ....

    A Second Hand Used 300D for $600

    Or

    A New 350D For $1250

    I looking for budget but also looking for quality..... doesn't MegaPixel really matters???

    what to take note when buying second DSLR cam????

    i scare i got cheated... becausse i'm new in SLR.....

    Btw Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!
    To be frank, I was in the same situation a couple of weeks back....

    I considered getting either a Nikon D40/D50/D70 or a 300D/350D/400D....

    a new 400D cost ard $1.4K so that is out of my budget.
    the nikon D40/D50/D70, I feel that it not value for money

    a 300D just doens't cut it as I would that a second hand 350D would be much better value for money although while shopping, I really tempted to get the Nikon D80 with the kit lens...

    I finally bought a 350D with extended warranty from a CSer in the BnS and have bought like 1k worth of equipments (flash, CF cards, lens) .... Sigh..

    Sometime I look back and wish that I have bought the Nikon D80 with the kit lens... as I felt that the nikon has a great range of lenses...

    I have considered getting the D70, but features wise.... I think the the 350D has better features thou my plunge into getting a 350D...

    I think that between Nikon and Canon.. only the D80 is comparable to the 350D or 400D.....................

    But then that is just me

    I am Nikon user converting to Canon (400D). Why am I doing that?

    1. Cheap plastic body, good enough for me. ( I am not going to waste extra $$ paying for something I don't really use: 400D is $1.4k, D80 is $1.8k rite?)
    2. Small body (easier for travel)
    3. More $$ to buy lenses (savings from the body)
    4. More choice of lenses (eg, 70-200L: f2.8 or 4, IS or non IS. Got 4 choices here).
    5. In the event that I strike it rich, there's the full-frame option to consider!!

    As all of you are entitled to your opinions, I am entitled to mine. I am now Canon user.

    Nikon is good but it is over-priced!! (More metal used??)

    But the D40 is not a good camera to put aganist the 400D or 350D......

    I think for all the good features, it still lack in comparision to the 400d/350d

    Well, yeah, but if it's just the size that one is after, then it doesn't really matter, considering that he was a Nikon user, he might probably have chosen the D40 than to change system.

    shutter speed of d70s? i don see how you really need to go that fast normally @ 1/8000s... shooting into the sun or bright sky with a f2.8?
    i have nv shoot anything above 1/4000s so far.

    Actually I don't think that it is that expensive...

    You are getting a number of things if I didn't read wrongly...

    1) Canon 350D Body
    2) Canon 18mm-55mm Kit Lens
    3) Canon 90mm-300mm Lens
    4) about 4 mths warranty
    5) Probably a very low shutter count

    I thin it is a decent bargain... not too bad....

    U can always by the camera and sell the lens to me..

    Hi guys,

    I own a 350D which I think is wonderful. Only thing is that I find the body a little small (but I have huge hands). Slap on a battery grip and the problem is solved.

    I definitely recommend a 350D, though I suggest you get a used one based on your budget.

    To be frank, I don't know how much to offer you also... I tried searching if anyone sold a 90mm -300mm Canon lens but I didn't find any results in BnS....

    My ideal setup would be to get a 80mm-400mm Tokina for reach....

    My suggestion is that you would be better off getting this bargain at BnS as this camera at least have 21+ months more warranty and personal.. I think warranty is a lot more impt.
