I would never buy anything other than video games from Best Buy.
I bought my 18-200 from Best Buy...only place that had it in stock
not saying I would buy it from there, just wondering if it would be a good purchase with the lenses and all
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM zoom lens (This lens is trash)
Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Zoom Lens (Not sure on this, but I hear the autofocus is pretty slow)
Generally when it comes to these all-inclusive kits you're better off buying what you need seperately because everything they include in the kits are sub-par to keep the price low. My recommendation would be to buy just the body and a quality piece of glass.
Kit lenses are never very good. You won't really notice how bad they are until you invest in real glass and notice the difference. I'd buy just the body and get the lenses separate.
would that camre be better than the Nikon 40d?
Best Buy is a rip off for stuff like cameras I paid $575 for my XT with kit lens...and if that 75-300 is the lens I'm thinking of its a pile of garbage seriously
It's really going to be what you use it for. The Nikon has less MP and is probably a little faster camera. It also has more color modes and a black and white option that I don't believe the Rebel has. The Nikon takes SD, the rebel takes Compact Flash (I prefer compact flash). The Rebel gives more control over shutter speed and ISO. Also, the rebel seems to have more control over the white balance. I would set up both cameras side be side and compare the features and decide which ones are more important to you.
I have taken these shots with my canon A510 3.2 mp and a point and shoot
off of these what type of lense should i be looking for?
I like to shoot a lil bit of everything, I would like to do more macro shots and skyline shots though, I really like to take night shots the most!
Those aren't half bad for P&S pics.
start off with a midrange zoom like a tamron 17-50 or a sigma 17-70
judging by those you would probably get the most use out of a wideangle, followed by either a telephoto or a midrange
oh and that kit is garbage
although I do that that bag, it's pretty nice
I hope you price matched...
If not, and it's been less than 30 days. Take that mofo back with the receipt and have them refund you the difference between them and Ritz or something.
