I have been a point and shoot user all my life and I want to try out some more serious photography, particularly because next year I will be going to Alaska and I want to take some good pictures while I am there.
I recently came across someone selling a 3-4 year old Canon Rebel XT with the stock EFS 18-55mm lens, an Ultrasonic 28-135mm IS lens, a 75-300mm lens, and 2 different bags. He is asking $600 for everything.
I know lenses can be expensive, so I liked that I could start off with 3 different lenses right away (Although, I'll be honest, I don't know how good these lenses do or what they will do exactly!) I also know the Rebel XT is the older version of this camera, but again, I am COMPLETELY new to SLRs so I'll be taking some classes and starting from scratch.
Do you think this is good deal for my first DSLR?
Any advice would be helpful, Thanks so much everyone!
