    I'm looking for my first camera (I go on other forums for other activities so I know how lame this question can be) and I've narrowed it down to these.

    sony 35mm camera
    Canon EOS Rebel 2000 Date 35mm SLR Camera

    Which one do you think I should get?

    Also, please relocate this because I won't be surprised if it's in the wrong section =D

    That "Sony camera" is a Pentax K1000 ... with possibly a 50mm lens and a telephoto zoom ... the add does not state if the camera is in working condition ... I doubt the seller has any photo knowledge to be able to check the functions.

    The Canon appears to have a 35-70mm zoom lens.

    These two are quite different cameras.

    K1000 is full manual ... nothing auto
    The Canon offers automatic exposure and built in motor drive.
