Well, I bit the bullet and picked up a 500D on Friday with the kit lens (18-55) and a few bits and bobs....
I have to say from a very basic/new to photography level, I'm already falling in love with it
Next on the list is the Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 1.8 II for the HD video, but more-so for macro, or just learning about prime lenses.
I don't pretend to know anything; but am really looking forward to the learning curve!
Taken yesterday, my daughter and perfect model. I like it anyway
