hey, i have been looking for a DSLR for a while now and happend across this forum. At current i only have a point and shoot compact camera (ricoh caplio r7). I have been reading about on here etc and decided i liked the look of the canon EOS 450D however the price is a bit above my limits seeing as im only 18 and still at college. I can however get through work a Canon EOS 1000d with EF-S18-55mm Lens for £258.33. This is with staff discount and cashback. What i want to know is, is this deal any good? I want to take alot of landscape photos of things like beaches etc as i travel alot but also of aircraft as i live basically next to a base. What do you guys think?
