what do you plan to take photos of?
people (my kids especially) -- and in particular settings like the park
nature shots and shots up a the lake (Lake Huron) when I'm up there and some sports events (baseball) if I can sneak it in. I might see if I can take some night sky shots as well, such as the moon. Again, likely only when I'm away from the city, though I would like to take some night shots of Niagara Falls and Toronto.
I'd build on getting lens. And sorry for using 35mm equivalent, but:
28mm wide angle
55mm (standard shots)
I just going on with the types of lenses I had before, all of them were screw on so no chance they'd work with anything...especially since everything was manual.
I think I should start on a lower end budget, so a used high quality camera with lower MP is fine, as long as sensor is top notch. No plans on producing anything over 10 by 8. I can do used lenses as well, but need direction on quality. I once had this 800mm lens which worked...but you basically need 800 speed film just to take outside shots, with the aperture complete open. Focusing was a bitch too, and 1/15 time minimum has hard. (1/30 would have made good pictures)
Am I okay with a 6MP higher end DSLR? What brand should I be going for? And are most lenses compatible with each other?--
