How about letting her buy a 600D and not interfering, if she was buying a D800 with 36mp just to put photos on Facebook then fair enough, but a 600D is hardly excessive or extravagant.

Because she asked for my advice. i just don't want her to make any decisions till she has looked Nikon.Sony,Pentax or the m4/3's.

Then advise her it's a good camera with a mature system, many lenses, speedlights, etc,etc and if she can afford it and likes it, there's no reason not to buy it.

Sounds to me like you're either jealous of her having a better camera than you or over-projecting your personal opinion on to her rather than being impartial.

Erm No rhys im not jealous. when i looked at getting a Dslr i could of gone with any brand but i chose Pentax as i think they offer good all rounder but that's just me. the only other camera she has looked at is the 1100D and she said as reading the specs was 'that one had more mega pixels' and the guy in the electrical shop was yes far better pictures with that one. im just trying to get her to open her eyes before spending £400 for that and around £100 on a prime lens. im trying to get her to go to a camera shop so she can have a look at more options not just the first thing she has seen.

Fair enough, but she's not going to go wrong with a 600D, is she? It's pretty cheap, £500 for the quality of the photos it and a 1.8 50mm will produce, is very good value for money and she has plenty of expandability options for the future.

It's not like she wants a £6000 manual focus Leica and making a huge, expensive mistake.

No she isn't going to go wrong with this i may even be able to get something out of this as she would have a canon body and i could get the Canon EF 100-400mm L. The 50mm lens you said is the lens i want her to get. so i have pretty much already in my mind made up she will get it but i just wanted to advise her better
