I will be going to Europe/US for a trip for 2 months and I wish to take great photos while over there. Problem is, I'm a newbie at DSLR but I have researched about the benefits about DSLR and convinced its the way to go.
so the most popular recommendation for a beginner DSLR from CS is the Nikon D40 since its a relatively cheap camera that takes great pictures. However, I know myself and I will the need the autofocus function and apparently the Nikon AF-S lens will add great cost.
Enter the 350D. Its almost 2 years old since it came out. But it seems to meet my needs at my budget(esp second hand). Faster camera (impt to me because I see myself taking pictures of sports events). So...
Is there any other camera that matches the 350D for my needs and budget?
Secondly, is a shutter count of 10k high? Considering a used 350D in the B&S. section.
Thanks for the replies.
