Thread: Is there a need to upgrade?

  1. #1

    Question Is there a need to upgrade?

    I'm using a FZ20 and so far it has served me very well, F2.8 throughout it's 12x zoom range is superb, no problems with macro shots too, nice pics.

    Is there even a need to upgrade to a full DSLR? If so, how about budget 2nd hand cam? Don't want to spend too much yet

    if it is serving you well then

    you do not NEED to upgrade
    you WANT to upgrade

    btw going to a DSLR will mean starting from scratch
    kit lenses do not normally have f2.8 throughout

    kit lenses normally cannot shoot 1:1 macro

    depending on camera, you might have to compose through the viewfinder
    and can no longer shoot video

    i suggest renting one to try it out first

    I'm using my viewfinder most of the time in fact, of course it'll be good to have live view while mounted on a tripod. The new Canon 1000D is a direct replacement for the 400D, is that a good investment?

    Even then, I wouldn't want to spend that much from the start. Probably a 2nd dual kit lens e500 is easier on my coffers
