    Why upgrade to the 500D? Learn to use your 400D first. If you're still a newbie, then speding money on a camera body is just a waste of money.

    Well, upgrading to a 500D is not going to expand your knowledge of lenses. You'll still only have a kit lens.

    And there's nothing wrong with the kit lens. Learn to maximize it first.

    Well i have tried afew lens before..didn't fancy any of them.. but i do know 1 of the main reasons i wanted to change to a 500D is because it has a video function in it.

    Hello Nicholas,
    I used my 400D for quite a few years and I learnt quite a lot by just using it and its kit lens.
    It is still a good, solid camera. And I still keep it. Lolxx...

    I think the important question here is not whether you should upgrade your camera or lens or anything.

    The important thing here is....how you get to shoot all those Lambos and GTRs??!!!!!

    Are those your buddies or relatives? If yes, just ask them for some pocket change and I think you can buy 5DII liao
