Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

    I just KNEW there was something VERY special about Latrenia [other than the obvious]... Thanks for nailing it down, Dawn!! Latrenia, you are soooo smart!! ...and look at this shot-- you look so much more PRO than the Nikon dudes here!! David, David, David... relax, buddy!! Let's give credit to Nikon... other than 9-point eye-controlled focus and a few other things, they've successfully followed most every Canon innovation while carefully skirting copyright protections!! Yes, Canon blows Nikon away... far away!! It's in the lens!

  • Latrenia Bryant

    Latrenia Bryant gave props (13 Jan 2010):

    AMEN ROB!!! see I knew there was a reason I like you!

    When you know how to handle the camera one don't need NIKON's 9-point eye controlled focus :)

    Whatever!!!!! What is funny is the sales guy at North Tampa Photography owns a Canon and refused to take sides :-) He was young, he does not know better

    Whoa....ladies and gentlemen! There seem to be most definite opinions on which camera is best. I personally use a Canon, but I'd have to say we should each use the one we like! Oh....and lest I forget why I'm here-----what a delightful shot of the gorgeous Latrenia!!☺

    This is a terrific meta shot of a terrific girl by another terrific girl!! I shoot a canon because it was on sale that day the photography bug bit me. Had Nikon been on sale, I would have been a Nikon girl. I know people that own both and can't shoot a picture worth a dime so we all know it is the shooter and not the camera LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Litz Go gave props (13 Jan 2010):

    hey, I knew I'm in the right company, lol! Got a Canon, and love it but I still have to learn how to use it. I love the stabilizer feature that I don't feel I need a tripod. This is one cool action meta shot, DDD! Want to see what Latrenia was shooting!!!!

    Personally, I don't understand all the hype over Nikon and Canon. I used Minolta for years and made the transition to Sony. I guess it's just a matter of taste.

    I know this is all tongue in cheek so I will throw in my Nikonian 2 cents. I have lots of Nikon lenses and accessories. My brother has lots of Canon lenses and accessories. It is all great equipment that surpasses either of our abilities. I do take better photographs though. :)
