It's fantastic and you can decide what level of subscription you want so great value for money.

Highly recommended - do th e7 day free trial thingy - unlike other things that are a free trial you don't get pressured into ordering at the end of it
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

I think at the budget you are looking at, any of the camera's mentioned will fit the bill.

I recently got a EOS450d and love it to bits! I did quite a bit of reading up before settling on it, but it was a long an arduous choice, the D60 and the A200 all ran it close, but the 450d seemed to have it all, and I must say it's hard to fault... with the exception of the guy behind it blush.gif

Until recently I used the software bundled with the Canon, now moved onto Adobe Lightroom and have an eye on CS3, but don't see the point in the later unless your willing to put the hard work in.

Also use photomatrix very occasionally for the odd HDR shot.

But then you can't polish a t*rd!

Photoshop Elements but to be fair I don't do much editing - the real skill is taking the best pic first time!! wink.gif

By the way there is a great feature called "My FIrst DSLR" in the DIgital SLR photography magazine this month - well worth a read if you're serious about buying one.

Actually I'd add that this lens issue is very annoying for the Nikon D60. I can't actually get the lens I want because there's no stock in the country - demand outruns supply by 7:1. There's a lot of D40x/D60 uses but not enough lenses to keep us happy!

I am now looking at having to double the amount I wanted to spend - which I can't really afford to do - and getting a Nikon own lens.

Sigma do some excellent lenses at very reasonable prices - I recently bought a Sigma 70-300 Telephoto for 139 brand new

Incidentally this is a very good website - the forums are very informative

Sorry but that just made me hit the screen in rage and frustration.

I know they do a very nice 70-300 telephoto. It's that one I want. For Nikon AF there are 4 versions, 2 work with the D40x/D60 and 2 don't.

I can get the 2 that don't from any camera shop in the country.

I could get a face to face chat with Keyser Soze more easily than I can get hold of the 2 that do.

Oops sorry - I got mine from Wokingham Photographic if that helps

Would it help if I said it was a ###### lens?

I'll be getting the Nikkor version and hoping my bank balance forgives me.

Go forth and multiply. dry.gif

Although I believe that all Canon AF lenses fit all Canon cameras.

Have a look at the Nikonians page - there are complex diagrams about which lenses go with which cameras.

I think we should have a photography thread over here - nowt wrong with copying rlfans!

This is actually an important issue.

Are Canon suitable lens much easier and cheaper to obtain?

We seem to have found a specialist subject of half the posters on here!

I've never had a problem, so far for my 400d I've got;

- Sigma 10-20mm
- Sigma 18-55mm
- Cannon 50mm
- Cannon 75-300mm is usm.

Not sure how they compare in price, I guess a quick look on Jessops or Amazon will give you a rough idea.

Sounds like its a bone of contention amongst our Nikon friends though! tongue.gif

I've found that Canon GENERALLY are easier to find lenses for - Sony is becoming easier as they make a bigger play in the DSLR market and all Minolta lensesd fit SOny too.
