In the market for my first good camera.....I have around £600 to spend and maybe could allow some extra for a zoom lense...so what's my problem?...
Well.... I was kinda moving towards Nikon 5100 but also liked the canon 600d, my mate swears by the Olympus pen which I also like and he gets some really good results and also wins competitions with...
The thing is this... I work hard for my cash and this MAJOR purchase is going to have to last me a long time and I want to get it right....my last camera was a fuji bridge camera which I owned since 2004....time to upgrade
I've done the jessops thing...held cameras n played with them , now I'm even more confused.
I've heard that lenses on the Nikon might not work future nikons and the same the canons....Olympus/Panasonic don't have that problem. Canon just don't have the build quality and have suffered from lock ups and then there is the customer care attitude which never used to happen years ago when I owned my first slr canon eos 650.
The Olympus pens remind of the cheap compacts you see in curries at discount prices.....
I want a camera to do most things....I want to try it all...sports wildlife portraits but enjoy landscapes mostly....
What started me off wanting a dslr? I did a photography course while on holiday....we did wildlife while on this course and I really enjoyed it...cameras where provided by the course organisers. They ran a competition at the end. I won it.... I was blown away. The quality of all my piccies was really good.
Anyway....what do you guys think.....any advice?
