5.0 out of 5 stars EOS 500D Early Days, 8 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Canon EOS 500D Digital SLR Camera (incl. EF-S 18-55 mm IS Lens Kit) (Camera)
I have had this camera just one month and I was originally going to purchase the EOS 450D. I am so pleased that I paid the extra.
This is a light weight and truely versitile camera. Having previously been a stills photographer with a gap of some years using just a compact digital, I found the useage of the camera both intuitive and great quality. I am looking forward to taking many more Photos. I would suggest that if you are attempting anything serious you need a decent Telephoto Lense. I have purchased the Canon EF 75-300IS but if you are looking to save money buy the kit with the 18-250mm lens.

Also check out the Canon 55-250mm EFS IS lens, its great value and gives excellent results.

Sorry, I wasn't aware Canon had an 18-250mm lens??
or they Canon don't do a EF 75-300 I.S lens either Sir.

I know "Sigma" or "Canon" do a superb 18-200mm lens for around £169 here on amazon.co.uk (though its not I.S just need a mono or tripod).

As far as I know Canon do not make an 18-250mm lens. I've found 2 EF 75-300mm lenses at Amazon.co.uk.
EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III £115.00 + £4.39 shipping
EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III USM £138.93 + £0.00 shipping
There used to be an EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM but this has been superceded by the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM £398.89 from warehouseexpress.com

Thanks for the review Michael. It's helped to finally make my mind up. Like you, I was stills photographer (Canon EOS 500N) and moved on to a Canon PowerShot 620, mainly because you've got the photographs instantly and can make any adjustments quickly although the picture quality lacks quite a bit even after running them through Adobe Photoshop CS5. I had toyed with the idea of a Nikon 5000 or Pentax K-x, but didn't want to get rid of my old Canon fit lenses (Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical Macro & Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Macro) even though they won't have IS, but which take fantastic photos on the 500N so will, hopefully, do the same on the 500D.
