    How not-sharp and soft would the pictures turn out?
    Can anyone post any relevant pictures?

    But I haven''t seen yet mah..
    Quite interested in the eos300v with its kit lenses..
    And hope not to get too many lenses yet..

    So want to see what the lense could produce first..before making any decisions

    Perhaps someone would like to share with me at SEED?

    Looking at the current EF lens lineup.. I'm guessing the 2 bundled lens are the following... All also no good?

    EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 USM
    EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III or EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM
    for film body and beginner, these lenses are small and light....good enough IMO

    how often will u print your pic larger than 4R?

    unless you are shooting with digital SLR, then you may want to invest in better optics

    I've been interested in photography for quite some time but never really picked up on the interest. Seeing all those nice pics u guys have sure re-motivated me

    I've never had a SLR, and am wondering what type of camera and extras a beginner should get.... most likely will be taking pictures of animals or scenary, budget is hopefully under $800. Don't mind an older model or 2nd hand.

    Any advice?
    Go to Buy and Sell corner, see if you can pick up any bargain there .
