As a former 1000D beginner user....i'd say you've got yourself a pretty decent camera ! I've had alot of satisfaction from this cam and till this day i've nvr regretted having it. The only setbks i had was not having enough $ to buy better lenses and bcos i went into sports shoots i eventually had to change to a 40D because of the burst rate.
ya lor. totally forgotten abt it... argh. harvey norman? ok later go there n buy hoo
Congrats to ur new camera purchase, now is to go out & shoot more !
congrats on your new 1000d! I also just bought my 1000d 1 month ago and is enjoying every moment of it. But during this 1 month, my shutter count went up to 4.3k as I was always trying different angles to take pictures, looking for things to take and learning all the skills that I have learnt in this forum. I love to take landscape shots and always find that the kit lens was quite limited with its 18mm. I always couldn't manage to take the pics of whole building and scenery and decided to upgrade my lens. I then finally decided to upgrade my kit lens to 15-85. It gives me the ability to have a wider angle and much more zoom then my kit lens as I needed a walkabout lens instead of so many lens. One day you will feel the same like me too Enjoy your taking photos!
welcome to the world of D-SLR! and yay! +1 to the Canon family!
can i ask how big is the difference from 18mm to 15mm focal length?Originally Posted by kohanson
I reckon 15-85 must be an expensive lens... i sometimes wish i can have a better zoom at things i shoot outside too. but i think at the moment i can only afford 50mm 1.8.

Welcome to the 1000D family ... while u save 100 to 200 when u choose 1000D, so u can get a Dry cabinet or Nissin flash as well...
Ok. the difference is quite big from wad i see. these freaking lenses are just so ex, i will have to save up for some time before i get one of these. Till then, i should have plenty of time to decide wad i need...
I love Tamron.
Save up for lens, don't be tempted to upgrade ur camera. Get the best lenses u can afford and use them everyday.
