This is my very first DSLR experience and after weeks of reading and watching videos online. I have decided 700D is what I need in the budget I have (40K – 45K INR). I have narrowed down to two kits:
They both cost me the same thing. I understand the first one offers 2 lenses but neither of those two is a STM whereas the second one offers only 18-55 which is a STM lens.
I cannot decide for myself. I read some forums online to understand the significance of STM lenses. They are “quiet” and have better auto focus.
While I am convinced that STM lenses are better than the non STM ones, does it really matter to a great extent for a beginner like me? I would be shooting more pictures than videos (70 % pictures and 30% videos). In that case, would it really be a deal breaker if I choose the 1st kit with two non-STM lenses?
