what's a good camera new or used under 1K?
I just sold my Rebel XTi
you did your homework I see
ionly upgrade for under $1k is a used 203/30d. 40d is going to cost you a couple hundred more, 5d used for a tad under $2k, same with used 1d2
Thanks Mojito, what is the difference between the 20D and the 30D?
xti was fine
XTi didn't make me happy.

not much, spot metering, picture styles . . . nothing major on hardware
Ok, I just bought the 20D from Johnnychimpo! Now what lens should I get? I wanna take portrait photos and some for my snowboarding trip!
85 1.8, 70-200 (f/4, f/4 IS, F/2.8, F/2.8 IS), 135 F/2
can i see your pics with the XTi? link to flickr?
Don't really have any that doesn't have me in it. Can't compromise my identity
I'll take some with this new camera from jonnychimpo!
I'm thinking of buying this lens:
for my first lens.
yes, I still am a beginner.
of course, I'm seeking your opinion on the lens.
I want to take snowboarding pictures and portraits! Do I need a circular polarizer or do these have built in?
I'm guessing I also need filters lol
You'll need a CPL, they aren't built in to lenses.
awesome, you know what kind I need? Thanks
can't wait to get the camera! sooo excited!
Let's say I bought the 50mm f/1.8 lens and the Canon 28-135 IS lens, how do I know which polarizers to use? thanks
lenses investment > buying more cameras
yah, so it's a good idea to go with those first two lenses for my first two lens investment? thanks
tamron 28-75 F/2.8 + canon 70-200 f/4
you need a polarizer that matches the filter size of the lens (ie 72mm or 77mm). if you can only afford on filter, get one for th largest lens you plan to own, and you can get step down filters to use it on a smaller lens.
don't scimp, cheap polarizers do nothing but diminish quality
Mojito - thanks for the advice. You think you can PM me your aim so I can talk with you? Thanks
I found two pictures I took with the XTi. I have bigger quality but I'm sure you guys don't really care lol.
yeah, skip the 28-135, the tamron is much better.
Meh, I would've kept the XTi and invested the funds spent on the 20D for some good primes, ie 85 & 135. If you mean semi-pro in terms of ruggedness and build quality, 20D will suffice, but in regards to image quality, I would say they're pretty much on par. You should see what people can pull off with the xti @ flickr.com. Oh well, to each his own.
yeah, i'm just hoping you made the swap for ergonomic and build quality reasons, not image quality...
Otherwise you'll be disappointed...
I was going to recommend the Tamron 17-50 2.8 instead of the 28-75....
Mojito - any particular reason for the 28-75?
