Am new to this forum and am currently considering getting my first DSLR. I have narrowed it down to Pentax k-r and Canon E550 and I have some problem deciding between them.
Personally I prefer pentax k-r, mainly for outlook ( I haven't got the chance to hold the camera yet but I like the white one ;P) and the pricing (which I am intending to get 18-55mm and 55-300mm).
However, as a friend pointed out to me, most of my friends around me are using Canon and Nikon, thus lens borrowing will be much easier and whether Pentax have any issues or limitations with servicing/repairs etc. And it will be easier to get 2nd-hand lens for Canon given the mass users in Singapore?
For my usage, I will be taking mainly nature landscape, street photography, animals and macro. So I am assuming that the 2 lens I will get with Pentax should be more than sufficient plus a macro lens? Of course eventually I might need more lens hence my concern about the pricing and availability of lens (new and used).
Appreciate all advices! Thanks in advance.
