I'm looking at upgrading my digital compact camera and moving into the world of DSLR for the first time so most of this is new to me.
I started researching makes and models with a figure of £500 in mind as a budget but came across the two offers below from Jessops and don't mind finding the extra £50. What I'm left wondering though is whether I'm likely to be better off going for the 500d with the additional lens to play with from the outset or the 550d, getting used to how the DSLRs work and what they are capable of with the kit lens then investing in an additional lens later down the line once I have a better idea of what the different lenses can even do?
As a newbie to all this, what would anyone suggest? The newer model camera with just one lens or older model with an extra lens?
Or, am I does anyone know of a better bargain elsewhere and might I not want to go with either of these?
Any comments are welcome because as much as I like using my current camera I think I've outgrown it and want to upgrade but haven't really got the slightest idea about what I'm potentially buying!!
