I want to start photography because I think is a very relaxing and agreeable hobby.
My father has a Canon, so I think to buy a Canon too... I saw the new Canon EOS 650D with an objective 18-135 mm at a good price: it is a good camera for beginners?
I need advices because I don't know very much about photography and spend a lot of money for the wrong camera would be really wasteful...
EDIT: Basically I want to start with photo of nature (landscapes and maybe macros) and people on the street on the day. The photo will be displayed on my MacBook Pro with Retina Display and the bests photos will be printed.
