    Neither! I'm a newbie too, but I did a lot of research before I bought my first camera. Hopefully the more experienced photographers in here would support me in recommending a used Canon A2e (EOS 5 int'l)

    is a good camera? Would it be good for sports photography? Finally is it good for a beginner? Thanks for the feedback guys :p

    Personal preference:

    Looking back on my beginnings, I would get the Minolta Maxxum 5. You can get it with a 28-100mm zoom lens for around 200. It is an extremely easy camera to work and it's quick to the draw for firing series of shots. It flirts that line of beginner and room for advancement.

    Of all the film cameras that I have ever used, I like this one about the most.

    If you buy it as a package, it only comes with the 28-100. Aftermarket speeking, you can get the same ones that they make for canon. I use Sigma lenses and they make the same lenses for every manufacturer.

    maxxum 5 and 50 are two different cameras. check out minolta's website and compare the two. I almost make the same mistake.
