Dear snrs, am thinking to going into DSLR and still comtemplating whether to get brand new or second hand. Has been monitoring the marketplace but the asking price for a used DSLR doesn't seem worth as it is slightly cheaper than a brand new. Take one few months old canon 500D, ppl selling 1150 which is only 50 to 100 cheaper than a new one. Am into other hobbies and usually depreciation for second hand item will be easily 20% or more. Thanks inadvance to those who can provide advice. Regards.
