  • need help on buying a new digital camera

    im having look around at buying a new camera to replace my canon g2

    kinda torn between getting a

    Pentax *ist DL as i already have a Pentax Z-70 35mm DSLR with 3 lens , 28-70,35-80 and 100-300 , so i could get one of those

    review and specs

    but i also kinda like

    the panasonic fz30 for the lens and general features n stuff

    review and specs

    I's consider myself to be a keen amateur more than anything else , i like composition rather than sheer technical excellence of the photo (if that makes sense) , and i dont use PS. Photos would mainly be taken in good light, but i would mind trying some of the "mood lighting" shots than have featured here on PSB.

    Any help or input be more appreciated

    any reccomendations on shops to check out/good prices would be cool to

    thanks

    dave

    As always, http://dpreview.com is your friend.

    I'd recommend trying your hand with eBay and trying to pick up a used but good condition Nikon D70. From my use of one, they seem to get everything right straight out of the camera (whereas my canon 10d lacks the saturation and warmth of the D70).

      Funny that... I have a rarely used D70 with the kit 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX lens that I have been tossing over the idea of selling.

      I mean... I just don't use the thing often enough...

          Buggered if I know. New it was $2100, it's about 18 months old. Still have all original boxes/manuals, etc. Firmware has been upgraded to the latest D70s firmware.

          D70 bodies seem to be going for around the $1000 mark at the moment, D70s kits seem to go for around $1500.

          So splitting the difference makes it around $1250.

          But then, for a few bucks more, can get a new D70s off ebay.
