equipment choice help much needed
Mar 24, 2013

Hi everyone,

my name is Tom, once an active member of this forum and the challenges section.

long story short - after a considerable time without camera equipment, i am trying to decide on a camera and glass.

i have always shot landscape and candid in ambient light - rarely using a tripod and never used flashlight other than rare fill in.

always used canon and unless something major has changed find canon equipment most intuative.

i am on a limited budget of £1k for camera and glass. there is a dizzying array of choice it seems and in a complete muddle.

best so far seems to be a 5d mk1 for around 500 and then sigma or tamron glass wide angle zoom up to 500 again. but also looking at newer bodies like the 60d.

any thoughts or suggestions based on the above would be very much appreciated.
