lol I've got or had nearly every single one of those lenses.

Some good prices there.

The price for the 100D is less than the UK high street, but just the same as the cheaper importers, like digital rev.

I'm going to be a camera snob. I wouldn't go near that camera sorry.... The only lens I would buy is the 50mm f1.8 for £75 best lens on that page in my opinion.

Jess doing her bit and thinking of us photographers. Thanks Jess...

paha, i rented one of these for a weekend. and it was an absolute dream. it has 3 processors. one digit 4 just for focusing which makes the auto focusing speed and accuracy phenomenal. ISO noise reduction is even better than my 5d and the 2 digic 5 + processors do an excellent job of image processing really true colours. the 12fps would be great in some situations but i worry it would make me a little snap happy.

The other thing i like is the reduced megapixels from the 5d. instead of 21.1 its 18.1 which IMO is perfect. i will buy one i have no doubt. just need to stop spending money on so many of my other hobbies. (Golf is taking alot of my cash at the minute...) too many hobbies for one man !!!!

On another note anybody likes me that much that they feel the need to treat me one of these would be greatly received....

Golf? You mean the car right?

Not batting ping pong balls round a field?

Lol sorry, I'm not into sports a single bit. As you can tell..

paha. no not the car. its the second most intensive sport i do. the first is badminton due to my little sister being a pro (number 3 in the world). other than that i don't really play alot of sports.

Golf is just look at it as a long walk and to choose where you go you clout a little white ball to follow. i'm going to play tomorrow afternoon, Beats being in work :)

Eh? Lol too much confusing camera talk for me....

**off to take random pictures on Instagram with my iphone** (that's as good as it gets here I'm afraid! Ha)

It's all about the content not the quality

No need to swear Jess. im slightly offended at that language... To be fair i have just got an Iphone 5s and it doesn't take a bad picture. but only ever good for snaps. :)

What lens do you recommend for a Canon D500? I'm wondering about a macro lens.  Will have to save some pennies first though.

I had the 550D, I then got the 650D.

I always wanted the Canon 100mm macro, the "L" lens, fantastic quality but a bit pricy for a single focal length prime... :S
