should mention it's for a first time buyer moving up from point and shoot.

Agree that the above is more than enough for anyone (though I would go for a kit with a stabilized 55-250mm rather than an unstabilized 70-300mm... see http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/-/b ... 9d5735en02)Deal Grabber wrote: ↑ Best Buy has the following,

Which is more than enough for anyone looking to dabble into more advanced photography with greater control options.
Are you after better quality or a more feature rich experience? If you want to actually learn how to take better photos and use custom/p/manual options so you can decide how you want to shoot than the DSLRs are well worth it.
If you want to leave it at "green" and just assume that the camera is going to produce stellar images than there plenty of other options from Sony/Fuji/Canon that might do it better for you. I see far to many people lugging DSLRs and not really knowing how to use them. Have some in my immediate family (:

definitely not. the camera is only a tool. the money you save will be spend on better lenses. once you have those lenses and push the camera to its limit, it'll be time to change camera. there's no point getting a good camera and using budget lenses as the lenses will be the limiting factor

While that was true until 2014 it isn't the case anymore. The new Canon UWAs are just as good if not better. Not to mention the 11-24 is a whopping 3mm wider and just as sharp if not more.RunOrDie wrote: ↑ I'm still using my 4 year old Nikon D7000 camera. It's important to really try out the camera in store as I didn't like Canon's Aperture and Sub Command dial placements.
Also, once you commit to a brand (Nikon, Canon or Sony) you will be heavily invested in all of their products, from lenses to speedlights, so it's important to figure out which brand suits your needs. Eg. Nikon's 14-24 f2.8 lens has many Canon shooters getting adapters just so they can use the lens.

Not meaning to start an age old debate but 11mm is a lot wider than 14mm, especially for rectilinear lenses. I don't think there's anything wider in the market at this time.
