So, my husband asked me last night what I would "realistically" want in a camera if we could buy an SLR right now. We have talked about various cameras, like the Canon 3Ti and the 60D, as well as lens options. He asked, would I want a better camera (i.e. the 60D) that cost more, but would prevent us from investing much in lenses right now; or would I want something more like the 3Ti, where perhaps I could invest immediately in a macro lens (as I love macro photography) or a portraiture lens.
I think I would be inclined to get a little less in terms of the body and invest more in some lens that I'd like, rather than spend more on the body and long for lenses that we can't afford. But I would really like some input, as I'm not sure what the best course of action would be. What would you do if you had, say, $1,000 - $1,600 to spend? Would you get a pricier camera with fewer lenses, or go for something lower end and invest in a lens or two that you would really like?
Any and all advice needed and appreciated!!
(I'm trying not to get my hopes up that DH was asking about this for Christmas. I doubt it as we really can't afford it and we just took what little extra money we had socked away to get a decent TV, but you never know, I suppose!!!)
