a crop camera

and all rounder type lens (18-200mm or similar)

buy a prime lens (35mm or 50mm) remember the crop factor will multiply by 1.5

spend about half what you planned

After a few months you will begin to understand the limitations of your kit, then you will be in a much better position to know what to buy.

Best of luck


This is the advice I would give.

Just jump in.  And expect your first decision to be wrong.  So don't spend very much.

Don't buy expensive lenses or bodies - until you are absolutely sure you need them - or you risk committing yourself to a system that might not be right for you.
