Hi everyone

My girlfriend is soon off to Dubai and I'm hoping to get the 350D through her. I have two questions though:
- Any suggestions on what Lenses to get?
- Has anyone purchased from Dubai before that can suggest the best place to shop and can offer any advice.

Thanks very much

John

The best lenses that Canon do are the L type - the glass used on them is some of the best out there although they are quiet expensive but the results would be very good. You may want to send a message to Nancy as shes got a 20D and has been using that for Pro work. if teh L type is out of your reach then check out this Tamron lens "Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4 Di" heres a review @ luminous landscapes:

"Killer Digital Lens"

Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 DI- Sigma 70-300 APO. Get the kit lens for wide since its's so cheap.

Thanks for the advice guys. Definately going to check out the Tamron lenses a bit more.

Still no advice for shopping for a camera in Dubai? Any idea where to get that kind of information?
