I purchased a Canon Digital Rebel XTi shortly after it came out in 2006. I didn't know much about photography, but since then I have taken 2 photography classes and purchased a few upgrades for the camera. I have learned a lot about photography and would like to think I am getting better at it. I was at Best Buy a while ago and played with the new Canon 60D - it was amazing. I've never used any other camera outside of my XTi - the 60D felt great, and from exploring the menus/controls it is obviously way better than my current camera.
Starting to look around...
- EFS 18-55mm (The kit lens)
- EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
- EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
- EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
- I have also rented some lenses as well
I usually photograph people - mainly my kids, but I have done engagement and graduation photos for friends and family.
Not being made of money, I don't want to upgrade just to have the newer model, but I would appreciate advice on this one.
Would I benefit by upgrading my camera body, or would it be better to get nicer lenses? Is the 60D too big of a step for me, or should I be looking lower or higher?
Thanks in advance!
