which DSLR?


Hey guys,

I have decided to buy a DSLR and narrowed down to ->

1) Canon EOS400D with kit lens ~34K

2) Nikon D80 with lens kit -> 48K ( out of budget, please don't consider)

3) Canon EOS350D with kit lens ~ 24.5K


Which one do you suggest?
I am a newbie so be easy on me

Re: which DSLR?

if you are just starting off with DSLR's then i'd recommend the 400D else the 350D is decent enough but the 400D has a few better features. You wouldnt really go wrong with either.

If you dont mind the price difference.. the 400D is good.
If you dont mind any price.. the D80.. but i dont see it if you aint a pro.
If you want the ultimate bang for the buck.. nothing beats the VFM that the 350D offers.

The 350D is at a price where you'd get it for a little more than what some ask for ultrazooms!

Re: which DSLR?

Re: which DSLR?

One more thing, if you are a newbie, then do you actually need one with lens kit? Even i was thinking of buying one, but without lens kit coz as and when you go deep into photography, then you can go for the lens kit. The gurus can correct me if i am wrong as I am a newbie too

Re: which DSLR?

Hey guys, firstly sorry for late reply!

1) yep i am new to photography and DSLRs

2) Nikon D80 is out of budget for now so its out!

3) @sierrafox -> hehe already read dpreview forums + reviews long ago

4) 350D best VFM -> agreed

but my budget is 35K so should i spend the money and get 400D with 18-55 kits lens <OR> 350D with some good lens? really confused!


Also 400D has bigger LCD screen guys, this should be pretty handy when i am not in front of PC + anti-dust feature

thanks for all the suggestions and help!

Re: which DSLR?

Get the 350D with a sigma 18-125 - You'll cover the range you need, and can go in for a tele later.

Re: which DSLR?

also try the Canon dealer at Fort. I think his prices are a little cheaper, though not sure.
