i am a newbie when it comes to camera choice, would appreciate if the "senpai" of CSforum could advise me. thank in advance
I am quite interested in taking landscapes and general nature shots.
Is it advisable to purchase DSLR with their "attractive" freebies at the comex?
1. Nikon D5000 kit II offering around SGD$1600 for both AF-S 55mm and 200mm lens
2. Canon 500D kit II is at SGD$2099 for just EF S18-200mm IS lens
*for the moment i could readily borrow a Canon EF 18-55mm IS lens,
i was thinking a cheaper alternative would be getting the 500D body(SGD$1199) and a EF-S55-250 IS lens(SGD$459) under purchase with purchase scheme. Although i havent asked the sales person how the EF-S55-250 IS len is sold.
or is it never recommended to purchase the above DSLR camera in Comex/PCshows? rather it will be better to check out reputable stores like "alan photo"?
2nd thing, i will be going Korea, Jeju island in december. i am wondering if the DSLR cameras would work properly during winter time and any advise for winter shoot?
Thank you very much in advance
