    For S$1100, you can get a brand new EOS 400D body $1050 and spend $50 on a used EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.

    TS do you have 1.1k for lens or 1.1k for old lens + new body.

    1.1k is not alot. you'll be lucky if you can pull off a new body with a kit lens.

    Don't bother about IT Show offers for dSLRs, their prices won't match shops like John 3:16, Cathay Photo and all. Cause usually its Canon themselves which will be at the IT show. At most they lower their RRP by a little and throw in more freebies.

    Hi,

    I sent an e-mail to Alan Photo, asking them for the price of their 400D kit. As of last week, the price that hey quoted for me was S$1,155.

    Hope this helps.

    Any reason why?

    EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS : OP $250(this one still can afford)

    AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD : CP $695 / TK $660 / MS $688 (inc. GST) / AP-F $670 / AP-S $645 / Lord $630 / OP $612 (international warranty)
    This is way outta my budget le.

    AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Vs EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

    Which is a better lens?

    SHould i buy a 2nd hand lens? Or new set with kit?
