So, I've been thinking...I really
would like to upgrade from my point and shoot Canon Powershot SX110 IS to a digital SLR. I'll have to save for a few months for any camera that I choose to set my eyes on, but I believe it'll be worth it.
As of this moment, I'm extremely interested in the Canon EOS 50D ([link]
. It costs a pretty penny, though. $1099, to be specific. It's absolutely gorgeous.
There's also a lens to worry about. The package includes a EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, but since I'm so into macro photography, I want to buy a macro lens, too, but I don't really know where to being with looking at lenses.
I hate to admit it, but I'm actually scared of moving up. I've never even touched
a digital SLR. Truthfully, I find it quite daunting.
Should I set my goal towards buying the Canon EOS 50D, or should I go for something cheaper since I'm a newbie and all? I feel as if, once I grow comfortable with such a camera, I'll be able to handle it, but should I settle for something less expensive and user-friendly?
Please, keep in mind my hourly wage at McDonald's is $7.27, and they're only letting me work weekends for about 5-7 hours right now. It'll take months before I'm able to afford any of this.
Thank you very much to anyone who is willing to lend some advice to a first-time DSLR buyer.
