Best Kit lens - Canon or Nikon
Feb 3, 2007

Good morning everyone,

Here's the concerns and questions. I switch from Nikon to Canon about a month ago. Personnally I'm ok with this. But one of a good friend is still debating on what to purchase (body and kit lens). For now, he doesn't want to go to any 3rd party lenses (Sigma, Tamron, etc.)

He's choices are the following:

Canon 400D (XTi) + 17-85mm IS
Canon 30D + 17-85mm IS

Nikon D80 + 18-70mm
Nikon D200 + 18-70mm

That's for sure, he wants to add a 50mm (f/1.4 or f/1.8) later on.

So, beside the price differences, what would be the best thing for him and he's on the D-SLR since about a year and quite a good photographer.

Thank you all.
