My first post here with a quick Q for help.
I'm planning to get back into photography as I use to play around with an old Nikon FE 10. I have its manual kit lens and bought a AF Sigma 28mm F1.8 fix lens for it as well. The camera and lens are easily 12-13 years old!
So right now I'm looking to go back into photography with either a Canon G9, EOS 40D or Nikon D80.
I like to shoot documentary style photography, landscapes/architecture and possibly portraits.
So Im considering the G9 as its like a mini SLR without the load of lenses. Is this a right assumption? I like the convenient package.
However I dont mind going up to a digital SLR if I can possibly reuse some of my old lenses, but they are 12 years old! If so, is the EOS40D or D 80 a better buy? Or is there another DSLR worth considering? I dont really want to spend too much. Is about a 1K budget with lenses realistic?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
