that's why I'm considering Canon system even thought Minolta Dynax 5 have a lot of features and my idea is to get the cheapest Body with AF/DOF to learn.Originally posted by Kho King
I think you need to take into consideration the system as well. Nikon and Canon have larger 2nd hand market...thus you can later buy 2nd hand lenses or cameras easier. EOS 300 is comparable to Nikon F65, and Nikon F80 should compare side by side with EOS30. If I were you, I will try come out with more money...and buy F80 or EOS30. These cameras are feature rich, and you don't have to worry about upgrading in a long time.
then what lens do I get?Originally posted by YSLee
Be aware that the Dynax 5 is really tiny.. it's a bit too small for my liking.
I agree with Kho King.. if you save up, you can get a F80 or EOS 30, which both will be full featured bodies that can do just about everything a higher end body can do (with a few exceptions, of course).

Thanks for the advice.Originally posted by langzi
i bought my eos 300 when it was just launched near to 3 yrs ago. that time got offer, so i think i got it round $600.
but i know that the price has gone up, bout 700+.
if you were to be on a budget, then i think a 2nd hand body wld be ok.
think you can get it for 400+, near to 500.
go to camera workshop and see if there is any stock. the price there can neg one.
wish you luck in ur 1st step into getting a SLR.
