Went shopping for my first DSLR body and have a budget of $1500-$2000 for body & lens. Came back a little more confused about what I want and then went online and got even more confused!
The choices are:
1. Canon 60D from a bricks & tile shop in Perth for $1400 (body only), then get them to tailor a package with lens, bag, memory cards etc.
2. Canon 7D from Digital World International for A$1375 (body only & this doesn't include insured postage, GST), and need to buy bag, memory cards, lens etc seperately.
My concerns with are warranty, postage risk, GST, potential problems and the costs adding up with camera bags, memory cards, battery chargers etc.
I really want the 7D because I understand its a better camera but I have to admit I'm a little scared of overseas shopping for something so pricey.
What would you do?
Next is deciding what lens to get, any opinions welcome. I can only get 1 lens first up so want something that will be good for landscapes and handle portraits and kids/pets. I am happy to get more specialised lenses later on when the savings recover. The camera shop guy recommended a Canon 18-200 mm.
