Hey guys, first post on these forums although I'm hoping to be quite active soon enough. Essentially I've gone out and bought a few magazines and read reviews of sub £500 (that's GBP) DSLR's. I read the reviews and decided that the Canon EOS 450D would be a good choice for me. I then read more reviews and I like the way that Canon think. Looking at some second hand stuff, I can get a Canon EOS 300D with kit lens for £170. Which is something that I can actually afford. As this will be my first DSLR, is it worth buying the EOS 300D? Or is the jump to something like a 450D really worth double the price + a few quid. Thanks for any help given, I don't know if you need to know what type of photos I take, but at the moment it's just a hobby. So there's lots of indoor stuff so I like low noise at high ISO's. Also in England it's never very bright anyway I also take photo's of my dogs alot so I like a high shutter speed. At the moment my camera is a Panasonic DMC-FZ8, which I find adequate. The lens is 36mm-432mm so I don't know if a kit lens is really going to satisfy me. I like the idea of it being nice and wide though.
