Im a newbie in CS and very new to DSLR. I’m kinda used to Canon’s system.. I’d a Powershot A85 but sadly enough it went ‘dead” after 2yrs and it’ll cost me abt $200 to get the screen repaired…. And so I got a Powershot A570 IS and it has been serving me very well since the last 4mths….. Anyways, I’ve been eyeing on 400D since the first time my eyes set on it abt 1yr+ ago.. I’ve had my hands on trying the 400D from my friend and I feel comfortable holding it since I’ve small hands. My aim is to get the 400D once after the release of 450D as im pretty sure the price of 400D will drop… Therefore I need some advice or tips or recommendation before I purchase the set…
Budget wise is abt $1350 or lesser!!
I like to take different kind of photos like sceneries, buildings, portraits, macro…
1. Should I get it with the kit lens 18-55mm or get the body and get a Tamron lens?
2. What abt grey set and local set? If anyone could explain more abt that… and how would I trust/know when i want to purchase from the shop..
3. Recommendations of any good cust service shops with good deals??
4. Any rough idea when will be the release of 450D cause I cant wait to get my hands on my 400D!! =D
Need ur advise here!! Thanks a lot in advance!!
