Default Re: Decision Time: New Kit or Camera

If you want a camera here is my 2 cents as a long time photo enthusiast: DONT invest money in camera bodys. Invest money in lenses. Bodys will be outdated real soon (sooner than you like). A great lense will stay a great lense forever.

I say: Used Nikon D80 something similar + plus used 50mm f1,8 or used 35mm f1,8 is all you'll need.

Ok, I am a big time Nikon fan (because I can't afford Leica, hehe) but I'm sure that Sony offers something similar. The difference might be, that with Nikon there is a huge market for used lenses that are still great.

I just scored a Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 from 1988 for a few bucks which still takes great pics.

Never forget - just as with drums: The camera and the lenses or the drumset matter 1%, the guy behind the camera or drumset 99%.

Therefore: You have a drumset, make the best out of it. You don't have a camera. Easy decision.
