Wow Mansur you're fast. I just posted this a minute ago. I am usually a Canon fan, but even though the Canon EOS 350D is much cheaper and has more megapixels.. I dunno it felt too small in my hands, it was like a toy. And it comes with a really cheapo lens. If I buy it without a lens and get a good lens with it instead it comes out to be more expensive than the Nikon. This Nikon is a hefty camera. Feels solid and it comes with an excellent lens. Thought it might as well be time to try out a Nikon.

Muscati, congrats for the camera. Just after using it, may you put a full review.

I am thinking of starting photography, & the 1st step is about getting a camera, so I will be glad to know more about it.

Congratulations! That's a nice little toy! ;) How much did it cost you in Oman? RO300?

muscati said...

Blue_chi- I'm not too comfortable telling how much I spent on it. Let's just say on Amazon.co.uk it costs £750 and on Amazon.com it's $1,199.

By the way, I've been so busy today that I still haven't had any time to actually sit and figure out this camera. On top of that, it turned out that the box was missing the user manual and it was the last camera in stock at the dealer so I have to wait 2 weeks till they can get me a manual.
