Seems like a good bundle for the needs specified by litzer.Originally posted by mpenza
how about the Canon promotion ( EOS 300 kit (with 28-90mm lens) plus a telephoto zoom lens (75-300mm) for $798 )
seems like quite a good price too....
If those shops have the bundle, think the price will be lower than the recommended retails price of $798? (probably $700 or lower?)
My 2 cents is for litzer to get 2nd hand eos30 (ard $600) plus EF50/1.8 ($130 brand new) and 2nd hand 75-300 F4-5.6 (err...ard $150?).
For the bundle above, think i would give the 75-300 a skip if i were litzer, but since he mentioned wild life shots and the constraint of budget, so recommend him this telephoto as a start.
err... "why eos30?"
Well, first of all buy it right at the first place and save a lot of hassles and money by avoiding the upgrading from eos300 to eos30 later on.
Think eos30 will last you longer in the learning curves.
Just my 2 cents
Alternatively, you might want to check out this eos300V selling @ $250 from singnet. If the deal is true, will be a good deal IMHO.
Just par it with a 50mm/1.8 and 75-300 F4-5.6 and here you go.
