    Im trying to figure this one out. I am seeing the refurbished ones sold by cannon, in kits with 2 lenses, going for less then what the "new" kits of the same thing are going online.

    Some amazon listings say the amazon listing is a "retailers kit made from canon factory components". based on the price of the camera bodies alone should I assume that the amazon retailer kits are also refurbished in some way?

    What actually lets you know your getting the version with the newest software updates?


    And what does expandable iso actually mean..

    It is not too hard to do your own updates.

    The native ISO is "real"...expandable is either Lo- or Hi-, below or above the tested, certified ISo.

    Typically, if the "real ISO is like 100-12,800...a camera may have Lo-.7, Lo-1, maybe even a Lo-2, and dip down to say an effective 50 ISO, approximately, and high might be a more-or-less 25,600; in most cases, using ISOs in the Lo- range cuts effective dynamic range, and going to Hi- often results in very noisy shots.

    If this is your only two choices, go with the T7. Almost identical, really. Same processor and FPS. But the T7 is newer and more MPs. It looks like you can get either with the 18-55mm on Amazon for 399.00. Go newer.

    Canon T6 vs Canon T7

    You won't know what firmware version is in the camera until you get it. You'll find the version in the menu. Check with Canon to see what the latest is. Updates are pretty simple and their instructions are very clear. If I can do it, you can. But you can always ask here. Someone will help.

    However does the dual pixel on the T7i really worth the extra cost?

    And how does the Nikon DX 5600 compare?

    Im worried about image quality, and working outside, and with low light

    It's pretty clear thst Canon is not class-leading in terms of sensor performance ... look at how Sony and Nikon models out perform the T7 in sensor performance.

    THey seem to get good reviews. Sony seems to be considered "not so great picture quality wise" but I cant find a clear concession on that.

    Nikon seems to be really nice, really expensive on the glass. But the pictures on their website are rather nice.

    Pentax is interesting based on their using the k mount and all kmount lenses.

    Though with Nikon and Canon, can you do standard manual lens control?

    With Pentax?

    Canon abandoned f/stop on the lens in the 1980's; there are NO EF lenses with an aperture ring on them....Nikon pre-Ai (1959-1976) Ai, 1977-1981 apprx., and Ai-S (1982,apprx. to present) All have an on-lens aperture ring; Nikon Af 1987-1992 aprx. , AF-D, and Af-i and Af-S, All have an on-lens aperture ring; Nikon G-series lenses have NO Aperture ring: Nikon has recnetly advanced to the E-dishragm. for elctronically= or electrically-operated, mostly in vey expensive high-end superteles, whci require newer cameras to acuate the diahragm.

    SonyAf/MinoltaAF--no f/stop ring on lenses

    Older Minolta manual focus lenses are not compatible with their AF cameras.

    Pentax K, KA, Af, lenses--have an on-lens aperture ring; as I read just today, the newer Limited series lenses do not have an an on-lens aperture ring; I am not that familiar with other mounts.

    Olympus M-mount lenses had an on-lens aperture ring; Yashica/Contax had an on-lens aperture ring,;Fujica and Ricoh used variants of the m42 and the K or KA mounts, as I recall.

    For using manufacturer or native mount lenses made from the 1950's to today, Nikon is extremely good.

    For using manufacturer or native mount lenses made from the 1970's to today,Pentax is extremely good.

    Canon d-slrs accept seven legacy 35mm lenses, with infinity focus with glassless adapters.

    Mirrorless cameras accept almost any lens which one can buy an adapter for.

    I have the T7i as my crop sensor body and other than not being water sealed (which I knew going in) it has performed exceptionally well.
