I think im sold on the Canon... in fact I am !!!
I am now going to decide on the lens to buy.
I would like to have the camera by this weekend but I think I might have to wait a wee while longer to make doubly sure on the lens.
I will keep you informed !!!

Thanks so much for your help its been invaluable

Hi TCav

Do you mean the Sigma 70-300 or the Tamron 70-300 ?

Wow that really is the next step up! I dont think I can justify that much extra cash.

Both, actually. The Tamron Di LD and the Sigma APO are both very good lenses for the price, and they're both 1:2 macro lenses as well.
