Should I buy a newer, entry level rebel or a used, semi-pro EOS
4 months ago

Hi,

I am buying my first DSLR, and am looking to spend under $400for the body. I am not sure whether I should buy a newer entry-level body, such as a Canon Rebel T3 or used T2i, or a much older but better quality one, such as a Canon EOS 40d or 50d. Which is better?? I know that the Rebels have more megapixels, better screens, and video, but the 40d and 50d are much more substantial and have a better build quality. Which would you prefer? Is there a reason, besides the shutter count, that I should stay away from buying a used body? I will most likely buy it from KEH because of their warranty

Thanks, Chris
