A&P OT help me pick my camera :)

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by LowLikeWhoaF150, Feb 14, 2006.

  1. Here's the options. Yes both cameras are 20d's.

    Which one of the 2 would you choose though



    Option A

    Canon 20D BRAND NEW WITH WARRANTY
    Lens EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
    Price $1,300



    Option B

    Canon 20D USED
    Lens SIGMA 18-50mm F/3.5-5.6
    FREE BATTERY GRIP BG-E2
    Price $1,270









    I guess I'm just curious which lens is better and which is the better deal. I'm kinda worried about buying used but it's pretty much brand new.

    I always prefer to buy new, especially when it comes to electronics. Lenses are one thing, but not the body.
     

  5. Dam I guess so. They need to hurry up though!! I guess I'll just start getting accessories and stuff till the price drops. What's the new camera that will replace the 20d? What is the price expected to be? I might be interested in that one insted. I'm kinda looking at the D200 also because it's 10mp, but it is also $800 extra with no lenses. :noes:

    But I think I rather stick with Canon. Will lenses for 20d fit on 5d and 1d??

    Canon eos lenses are all the same
     

  7. I was just wondering about the lenses also because I saw a Brand New 20d with no lens for like $1,150. :dunno: If that lens in option A isn't worth the extra $$ I'll just get the one without a lens and get that 50mm 1.4

    no, ef lenses will, but ef-S lenses will only work with 20D and rebel bodies.

    I would go used if you can take some test shots with it to ensure that the sensor is not scratched/damaged.

    Otherwise go new.

    I think the 20D replacement is the 35D:

    when did cameras turn into cell phones? you don't need a new replacement every year. And the d100 was what, 4 years old before the d200 came out. shit the guy I sold my d30 to still uses it as a backup to his 20d
