Hello, ive just began to take photography a little more serious after years of going to airports and airshows with two point and shoot digital cameras and taking basic aircraft pictures, i have now been promised by my wife that santa will deliver me a shiny new DSLR camera for xmas. I was hoping you kind, more experienced people out there could offer me some advice.
1) I have been told that the Nikon D3000 and the Canon EOS 1000D are the best starter DSLR cameras, but which is the best as both seem to be around the £350 mark with 18-55mm lenses.??
2) For photographing aircraft flying and takeoff & landing is a 18-55mm lense sufficient or is a big meaty 18-200mm lense preferred?
I know that the more experienced and wiser may get frustrated by simple questions like this but any help/advice would be appreciated.
