personally, I don't think so. Unless you care for a swivel screen which imho could come in handy in some situations.
If not, just get the t2i. I'd highly recommend going for a 60D if you got a little bit of extra cash.
Unless you can get a t2i/t3i for a steal deal.

As for the kit lens, depends. That lens isn't the best but it's great for people first starting out.
If you already own quality glass I don't see the point of getting it though.

Which one are you looking at? Im debating between the YN-460II or YN-560. I can get a direct mount for my sony for the 460II, but I would need a hot shoe adapter if I get a 560.

I went ahead and ordered both ahaha! I figure I could use the 460II for daily use and 560 off camera during photoshoots.

why are you using a 460II on camera? you know that's a manual flash right? what you were looking for would probably be a YN-468 (not sure if they make that for sony mount), but a 467 would work well too.

the 60D is kinda overrated to me (especially upgrading from a 50D) since there's no micro-adjustment, and the body isn't made of magnesium alloy like the 50D, 40D, etc. i'd rather invest in a T3i, and save the rest towards some glass.

but i agree with you on the kit lens statement.

^ careful buying off eBay, as you can accidentally buy a 'grey market' camera, which you can't get a US warranty for (through canon).

the first one MIGHT be good, but i'm pretty sure the one you posted in the 2nd link is a grey market (since most grey market ones are sold bundled with other items).

yo man pay attention, youre close to getting fucked in the butt.
the first one is an okay deal, you'll definitely be able to find better deals for a t2i/t3i on craigslist depending on your area.

the second listing is for A T3 not a t3i, huge difference, if you don't know then look it up.

if you're considering a t3i, i would also look into the t2i, the only differences mainly being that the t3i has a swively screen which can come in handy, but may not be worth the price for you.

haha wasn't gonna buy, thanks for the feedback i'll hold back before i buy. might skip the t3i and just grab a t2i since the difference is just the swivel screen.

i think the t3i also has some sort of digital zoom, so essentially any lens you have turns into a zoom lens. this can be cool i guess, but it'd be shaky as fuck.

Has anyone ever shot with Sony/Minolta before? Has anyone tried the Minolta "Mini Beercan" 35-70F4?

I wanna buy a new camera tough, still cannot decide whether it is gonna be a DSLR or a bridge.
Nikon D7000 or a D90.

I am mainly using this camera for street photography or some potraits. and shooting food of course haha.
I have a Nikon D5000 with a 18-105mm and 50mm 1.8 (no AF, cannot use it) atm, but these af-lenses are so expensive.

edit> or how about a leica dlux5?

Well I would suggest getting a D7000 since the D90 will not be much of an upgrade from your D5000. The only different is you will have a built in AF motor on the D90. The D7000 is pretty much an upgrade of the D90 and you will have the upgraded sensor and 1080p video.

dunno if there's any point in upgrading from a D90 to a D7000 - what specs do you want that the D7000 offers that the D90 doesn't?

for street shots - get a micro four thirds camera or a x100 - smaller cameras are more discreet and can get some dope candid street shots

Canon head here. I'm looking for an all-purpose, walk-around lens that's sharp. The kit lens isn't doing it for me, and I already have the Nifty-Fifty, which is a hassle taking pictures with 'cause you have to take like 20 backwards paces just to take a decent group shot.

I don't care if it's prime or zoom, although I'd prefer a zoom lens, just 'cause it has a very diverse focal range.

^ i shot with sony/minolta before (my first DSLR).

their prime lenses are nice for beginners/some hobbyists (i had the 50mm f/1.7, which was what got me into portrait photography). but any other 'cheap' lens with sony cameras i've had bad experiences with, which was why i ended up switching to canon.

anyways, here's a link of users with the 50mm i had:

i bought mine used for around $100 back when i was in high school (a little over three years ago), not sure how much they go for used now.

the x100 is still expensive. can you recommend a good alternative?

^ i never had or used a micro 4/3 camera, but i think the best ones are the panasonic GF-series, or the olympus pen e-p series.

i think the newest models currently are the GF3, and the E-P3.

but if you save up for a X100, its honestly the best camera i've ever owned. i use mine more than my dslr.

Has anyone printed any photos to hang in a room? I was thinking about printing some for my room and my dorm but have no experience with this. I was thinking something about the size of shanks actual picture (not pink) but I don't know the size. Would this size look good in a dorm?


Also I would be printing with bayphoto.com because I've read some good reviews about them. Does anyone have any experience with them?

i wouldnt even consider a GF3 - smaller camera, more touchscreen, less buttons, basically same internals as the GF2
looks ugly too, imo

the best m4/3 at the moment is the E-P3, but with the 12mm f2 lens, it costs more than the X100...

Dang, thanks a lot, man! Good stuff.

I'm leaning towards copping the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8, just 'cause it's relatively cheap and I've heard some pretty positive reviews. I'll check out the other lenses, though.

Ok, 24-70 2.8L, or 35mm 1.4L?

I was going to get the zoom lens, but I am thinking the prime will be better and since I am using a crop frame (not full), it will be equivalent to 57mm which isn't bad. I will also be switching to a FF body hopefully when the Mark III comes out. Or is there another lens I should be looking at?
