Im sure he knows what to get right? He can think for himself. We can tell him 10 brands and he will still choose the one he's comfortable withOriginally Posted by Rashkae
Inevitably, its up to him to decide. If he does sway from his initial choice, it just comes to show he is not firm on his own decision. Dont worry he will do fineOriginally Posted by edutilos-
One of thing you have to consider, in future do you want to continue upgrade your gears for DSLR. Afterall, after buying a couple of lens and gears, I don't think you really want to switch to another system/brand when you want to move let say from: Sony / Pentax to Canon / Nikon.
Think carefully first before you buy. Survey each brands and see the equipments you want to upgrade in future, do you really want that as an upgraded gear?
If not upgrading in future, then choose a system / brand that best out for the $1000 deal.
You lose more than you can gain by being an impulsive buyer.
Nikon D3s/D3000 / 70-200VR II F2.8 / 24-70 F2.8 / 70-300VR F4.5-5.6 / 18-55 F3.5-5.6 / SB-600 & 900
Damn, I wish someone had hit me on the head and told me that everytime I have the BBB itch... like when I went ahead and bought the D5k without realizing it didn't have a BIM. Great fun camera though.
