Somebody Who Owns A Rebel XT [D350]

Sun Jul 03, 2005 10:13 am

Hi,

Few weeks ago I bought a Nikon D70, and last Tuesday, taking the opportunity of a travel to Panama, I bought the Rebel XT [D350].

Great camera the D70, but at this time, I want to hear from some of you about your experiences from the D350, that I don't use yet [I'm less than an amateur in this field, and I'm in the process of trying to learn how to use it].

Thanks in advance to all of you!

I have an XT and it works great for me. Pretty much all my pics are shot with it. I also have the Canon 75-300mm lens, the non IS one which considering its price tag works just fine.

I have had the 350D for the past month or so.

So far Excelent camera, Not had any problems at all. Well worth the £££.

Is it somehow cheaper in Panama that it would be in the US? How much did it cost you if you don't mind me asking?

"Is it somehow cheaper in Panama that it would be in the US? How much did it cost you if you don't mind me asking?"[previous reply]

Of course you can ask!

I think it's cheaper [at least than Miami or Florida].

I bought mine at Panafoto. Another advantage it's than you can [I don't know the correct word in English] "deal" the price. My D350 cost me [brand new] $899,oo, plus an additional lens 75/300 III something [ultrasonic, but not the IS] $200,00. They gave for free a 128 Compact Flash Card [Lexar] and I bought another one of 1G for $85,oo. The sales tax is 5%.

And thank YOU for the answer.

Sorry. The card I got for free is SandDisk not Lexar. The camera came with a EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens, and I bought an additional one EF75-300
mm f/4-5.6 III USM.

Start with a 75-300mm f4.5-5.6 III USM. Consumer's lens but after time it will give you a feeling for how to use your camera. After a few months upgrade. With your set up you should do fine. Though I hear a 50mm 1.8 is a nice add on for less than $100. And the word would be "negotiate."

Take care,

Completely idle curiosity, but why did you buy a D70 and a 350D? (I've actually been pondering the purchase of a second hand D100 myself for a little while)

"Completely idle curiosity, but why did you buy a D70 and a 350D?"

Most of the people at A.net have a Canon or a Nikon. As a said I am less than an amateur in this field, so I want to try both an see the results [stupid logic I know].

I just want to see both working. And how bad I am using both...

[And call please stupid twice, because I also bought a Kodak X7590 and a Canon Power Shot Pro I].

http://www.keh.com will give B&H a run for their money in terms of price. Last I checked they had it in stock.

Take care,
