First off I would just like to say hi! I am somewhat new to the boards here. I was here years ago and had a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI That I sold. I did no shoot much for many reasons at that time. I am looking to get a Canon again now New or Used. Been looking at the XTI which I had and XSI or 40D etc.
Budget body and kit lens around $200 to $300 just want to start shooting again. Would be mostly taking photos at the beach, sunset and some actions shots (surfing)
Any suggestions and why would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
40D can be had around $125. Just shop a while, fleabay, FredMiranda, here on POTN, etc. Great camera still, robust, good AF (surfing), plenty of modern stuff still going on, very relevant camera still.
The 18-55 STM can be had around $80 used, again shop. Great for your every day stuff.
The 55-250 STM would be excellent for surfing, long range stuff, in good light (sun). Can be had around $160~180, again, if you shop used and just hunt a deal.
You'd be quite set, with extra batteries, for $400 or less with excellent sharp glass that is fast to focus too.
