The Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.5.... I have one and it is OK but for low light I would be inclinedto consider the 17-85mm Canon over this as the IS (IMHO) will be more helpful than the slightly faster Sigma here. I really would consider the Canon 50mm f1.8 as it is great in low light and is really good value for money. The only thing being you would need to zoom with your feet (move).

Sarah, really not sure what happened,did you had a PM from Gurbakash or something, as I can't understand why you suddenly feel that he is not taking your advice or not interested in what you have to say. There is nothing in any of the posts to suggest he is not interested in your advice and definitely nothing sexist as you seem to think. If something did happen by PM or email it should be sorted out through the proper channels if not I think you have the wrong end of the stick.

Sarah you being a woman has totally nothing to do with it, I dont know where you got the idea of that from??

Is it becuase I didnt reply to your last message, i just got caught up with a wedding photographer which advice would be very important....

Sorry you feel that way

Anyway Is a 20D way better than a 400D?

LOL, not a wedding photographer (yet), but working on it, my main area of knowledge is sports photography but I'm moving into weddings and portrait work.

Anyway, my take on your question is they are different, the 400D has a higher res sensor but the 20D is better at the high ISO settings so would give you the ability to shoot in lower light.

I done a little more reasearch and might be able to get a Nikon D80, how does that compare to the 20D? Also what you do think about fujifilm S2?

As I'vepreviously stated
Quote:
With the currently released models I would go Canon 30D over Nikon D80 as the noise at high ISO (needed to get shots in low light) is much lower so that is helpful
and
Quote:
If you can get a good 20D with a guarantee then I would go with one quite happily as the results in low light are generally better than the 30D as it's high ISO settings were for some reason stronger.
One point I didn't mention is that the max ISO on the Nikon is 1600 where the Canon 20D and 30D both have ISO3200 so that will double the sensitivity which is important!

Can you help me out, I have no idea what the ISO is for. All i know is the higher it gets the more grainy/blurry the picture gets. Why would people want there pics like this?
