Hi,

I'm thinking of getting a Canon 400D(New) with a 2nd hand lens. How much would the set back be? I kinna have a budget of about say not more then S$1.1k?

Going on a trip next month so in a hurry to buy and try.
What type of lenses to buy for genral photography?
Kit lens a good buy for 2nd hand?
BnS here a better bargain?
Any shop that would have New Body with 2nd hand lenses?

Thanks for all you help :think:

For S$1100, you can get a brand new EOS 400D body $1050 and spend $50 on a used EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens.

TS do you have 1.1k for lens or 1.1k for old lens + new body.

1.1k is not alot. you'll be lucky if you can pull off a new body with a kit lens.

Do you know or can you recommend a place where I can go?
I understand from Canon site prices are $1349+CF2GB+Guide+Mag+EF Lens & Acc.
Should i wait till 6 March IT Show, would i get a better offer there?
My Trip is End March anyway?

Don't bother about IT Show offers for dSLRs, their prices won't match shops like John 3:16, Cathay Photo and all. Cause usually its Canon themselves which will be at the IT show. At most they lower their RRP by a little and throw in more freebies.

Hi,

I sent an e-mail to Alan Photo, asking them for the price of their 400D kit. As of last week, the price that hey quoted for me was S$1,155.

Hope this helps.

Any reason why?

EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS : OP $250(this one still can afford)

AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD : CP $695 / TK $660 / MS $688 (inc. GST) / AP-F $670 / AP-S $645 / Lord $630 / OP $612 (international warranty)
This is way outta my budget le.

AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Vs EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

Which is a better lens?

SHould i buy a 2nd hand lens? Or new set with kit?
