    Default Another Noob Question

    Hi All,
    I am very sorry if it has be post before.
    I am currently looking for my new DSLR, with a budget of not more than $1800.
    I am looking at either the Canon 450D or 40D, think with my budget it will either be the Canon 450D kit with EF S18-55IS + the EF S55-250 IS lens total $1759 or the 40D with EF S18-55IS lens at $1799. Any Advice whether which one should I get.

    I am a newbie, with little or none knowledge about photography, will the 40D too complicated for me.

    Thanks for the help

    You are looking at the recommended retail rate. Street prices are cheaper.

    The 450D kit retails at $1180 w/ GST, and you can purchase the 55-250 IS at $360
    The 40D kit retails at $1620 w/ GST. Same price for the 55-250 IS.

    from this price, 40D will be a better choice. 10% above your budget... but I think it is pretty worth it.

    I think he meant together with the 55-250 IS.
