Default Canon EOS 10D??

Hi all!

I am looking at purchasing a Canon EOS 10D. I have had a good look around and a lot of people have recommended this camera to me. But I would like to get your opinion. I will be using the camera to take shots like landscape, close-ups and wildlife and some sport shots. I will be using two different lenses. The Canon EF 35-80MM and the Canon EF 90-300 Non-USM Lens.

Tell me what you think?

For landscape you might need something wider than 35mm because of the 1.6x factor... The 1st picture below was taken with an EF28-135 IS USM, and as you can see was quite tight @ 28mm! The 2nd picture was @ 17mm with a Sigma EX17-35mm f2.8. :P

35mm is like a normal lens on a 10D. You'll get a long 480mm though with a 300mm for wildlife! You may think about getting some wide aperture lens since it'll help in the AF/manual focusing department, as well as in gaining that extra shutter speed @ the long end...

Right. 35mm is not "wide", it's standard.

Look TAMRON 19-35

If have a choice between the Canon EOS 10D and the Canon EOS D60. Which camera would you buy?? Remembering that the D60 is about $1000.00 cheaper then the 10D.

You really mean $499, that's a bargain then and I wouldn't give it a 2nd thought since the EOS-10D is priced @ $1499... :lol:

Where can you get a D60 for that price?!? Somehow, I think this is a typo, or else the D60 is being sold in a "distress" sale. If I recall, one of the main selling points for the 10D was that it was a better camera than the D60 and D30, and about 1/3 less cost. Which would make the D60 about $1,000 MORE, not less.

However, even with the cost difference as you state, I would go for the 10D if I had the money. I absolutely LOVE mine, and find it a good companion to the Elan 7.

Hi,

I am talking in Australian dollers. Over here the 10D retails for about $3400.00AUS and the D60 is about the $2500.00AUS dollers.
