  • 300D or S/H D60

    Well, I am considering the Canon 300D, but what about the Canon D60? The only real problems I can see is the warranty, parts being hard to aquire and just old technology. But then again, so many photos I see taken with D60s seem to be better than those with the 300D.

    Also I was told that Tamron make better lenses than Canon. Is this true? I don't know anything about lens brands

    And don't bother replying about the camera Sam (Rudge that is) I already know your opinion (and what your idol nature photographer has to say)

    From what ive seen here Tamron have a bad name, sure they arent the fastest A/F lens out there but my 24-135 is great. Nice and sharp, still havent had a go at aviation shots yet though. Canons L glass will be the way to go but i doubt your willing to spend that much.

    Heres a few good quotes for ya to read.

If for any reason i happend to drop my DSLR (god forbid) i would really apreciate it if it stayed in one piece with maybe a minor dent or scratch. If i pay around 1000 for a camera i expect that. I would like to see the reminents of a 300D after droped on the concrete. And while your at it, get a photo of the dust pan and brush used to clean it up........hey you can use my D60 to take the photo

      Editing is what makes the difference these days really. Ask Tim Ward, he just learnt that

        I think those quotes fit this topic very well. It also saves me time from writing that you dont want a 300D, you want a S/H D60 and with the money you save buy some more gear for it. You'll be happy you did.

            Money I save? I can't find a D60 which is cheaper than a brand new 300D!! Second hand sellers over here can be really stingy sometimes

            I think I may get the Canon EF 75-300 F4-5.6 IS USM, from what I've seen the Image Stabiliser actually makes a significant difference. But if I decide I won't really be needing it it'll be the 75-300 F4-5.6 USM III

              That's surprising considering the D60 is two generations old. But if you can find one which cost equal or less than the 300D, then I would suggest you get it.

                An un-named D60 owner recently asked me whether it was worth ditching his D60 in favour of a 300D - i said no.

                They are capable of producing very similar outputs, but the build quality of the D60 is loads better, plus its a more able camera in terms of features.

                  Really? Its been his only insult for me for quite a while now so its lost its impact.

                  And Hugh, have you really seen a 300D for less than NZ$700?
