    Hello...welcome.

    I believe there is a pricelist in the forum, do a search.

    As for whether the cam is good enough for a newbie, I would say yes. All entry level cam is good enough for a newbie. It's just a matter of whether you are used to the user interface and locating the functions and if you can put it to good use to justify it's worth.

    Any cam can be good enough for outdoor shots with good lighting.

    Actually, the price keeps dropping.
    So before you buy, ask shops to quote the prices for the 500D.

    Maybe can try Alan Photo, MS Color or Cathay Photo.
