A quick question. I'm looking at buying a DSLR in a month or so and budget depending .. but I ask your advice.. is it silly to go straight to a 50D ?
My budget would probably allow a 500D (plus the bits and pieces like lens hood, polarizer thingy, camera bag etc) but for someone new to DSLR do you think it would be silly to get a 50D.
I'm thinking maybe it's wise to start off at the 500D level and in some years time upgrade if I feel comfy with the DSLR at the time. I don't want to get in over my head and get a flash fancy camera and with no idea how to use it to it's full extent.
I've been reading soooo many posts and ppl have gone from a 400D to the 50D so they are quite capable in the DSLR zone, which is why it got me thinking rather than jump in the deep end with a 50D, learn to swim first with 500D.
Any advice will be great. Yep I know there is the Nikon D5000 out there too but I'm favouring Canon at this point in time.
