to buy or not to buy a used 400D ?
Mar 29, 2010
I beg your pardon, these are just my mumbling on spending or not money on a used DSLR, fell free to give your opinion:
I recently asked how much could I pay to repair my broken EOS300V and decided to aim for something on the used market instead.
In the same shop I could buy a EOS500 (film) with a 28-80 USM and a Sigma 70-300 4,5-5,6 for 190€, OR a EOS400D (body only) for 250€.
Up until now my film camera has been used quite loosely by my sister (cause she wanted something 'not digital') and sometimes by me. I just have an old 28-80.
I just recently bought a new compact camera and didn't plan to buy reflex, but I'm tempted to buy the 400D/Rebel XTi. I would use my old lens on it and definitely start to use the reflex more 'seriously', then eventually buy some better lens in the future...
would you call it a deal to buy the 400D at 250€ (considering I really don't know its conditions, also if it semm fine to me)?
