Review of Canon EOS 450D
This is a tough decision. I have the Xsi (Canon 450D). I immediately wanted more zoom range. You will miss the range your Powershot has compared
to the kit lens.
Before my daughter ' s graduation, I had a little windfall profit, and I found a 18-200 OS Quantaray on craigslist. That is not the best lens, but I don't
see it being worse than my kit lens, and the zoom range is WONDERFUL! My next lens will be the 50mm 1.8.
I bought my camera the way they suggested because I was going on a rare trip to the coast. I don't regret doing this one bit. I already had some
money saved up, so I paid it off in a few months.
I have had the camera since august and I am still learning things it can do. I believe that right now, the Nikon has better mid range cameras, but that
was not my price range. When I am ready to move up, I believe Canon will have closed the gap with Nikon in that price range.
I will say, that moving up from a smaller digital camera, many times miss the pocketability. Get use to carrying around more stuff. I have missed shots
while digging out the DSLR out of the bag.
Good for you, saving up and moving up!
