    Hi all,

    I've been thinking of buying a DSLR for some time, but can't decide which one to get. I am new to photography and mostly intend to do nature and architecture photography as well as time lapses and hyper lapses. My budget for the camera is around 700€.

    I have narrowed it down to EOS 800D, 77D and 80D but have a few different options:

    - EOS 800D with 18-55mm (480€) or with 18-135mm (630€),

    - EOS 77D with 18-55mm (570€) or with 18-135mm (700€),

    - EOS 80D with 18-55mm (715€).

    I will do some traveling in India in August but the weight of the camera isn’t a concern to me. Although I’m new to photography I don’t intend to use auto mode all the time and intend to shot in RAW.

    Which of the cameras should I get?

    Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

    80d is overall the best from these 3, alas reflected in the price.

    @GalGraanin I've no problem with anyone disagreeing with my opinion, but why ask a particular question and then disagree with the answer????

    The 18-135 is a decent performer lens.
    The body side of things is really going to be up to you.
    I personally tell everyone to go test drive them first and see what fits.

    The lens itself is a good all around street walking lens that allows a full scope of distance.

    IMO, go for the largest camera (functions and format size) you can afford.

    Have you personally tried/handled/demo'd any of your three potential d-slr choices?

    I find cameras a lot like shoes or boots--very difficult to choose from numbers/stats...

    Thanks for the info. I can spend around 700€ max is it worth more to get a better lens 18-135mm with 77D or better DSLR 80D with 18-55mm?

    both are 24MP.
    Both APS-C sized sensors.

    IMO, go find one in a store and feel them.


    they will both perform fine me thinks.

    Better in the sense of NOW, or better for your FUTURE, long-term life with this camera?
    I see if as a 50-50 tossup, considering that ANY of the three options could allow you to make a lot of fine pictures.

    I just went through this same decision last fall. ALL three will take fantastic pictures. Literally Google or Youtube the title you posted. There are a ton of reviews and videos comparing them. It really boils down to how much control you want over the camera or how much you want the camera to do for you.




    Jaomul is correct, the 80D is better overall. It has features the other two don't and weather resistant. Thus, the price. Just depends on how serious you want to get. Watch the video.

    My son has the 80D. I've shot with it a few times.

    For wildlife it's 90% of what my 7Dkm2 is with a better sensor. The others....not so much.
    The others will perform architectural and landscape style photography just as well.

    I am totally agree with you. There are people want buy the Canon 1D series or Nikon Dx (where x is a single digit) series because it look bad a$$ and big while I prefer smaller one if possible. My new camera packaged with the battery grip and it is still in the box (need to sell it asap)

    For OP, the 3 choices are not quite the sames especially the 80d one. The price is about the same, but the lens are totally different. Are you planning to just use one lens?
