I use canon. I prefer 50D. 450D also good.

For potrait and wedding try to look for 17-55 f2.8 IS USM and 24-70L USM if you have extra to spend.

Selamat Datang! I've just moved from Teregganu. I lived on the Perhentian Islands for 4 years. Good luck with finding the money for the camera.

Re: newbie from Malaysia

Welcome shooter, there is a lot of information in Pixalo about various photographic equipment - you could use the equipment review section of the site for assistance, just remember not to become too confused with the information overload.

Take your time making decisions and chat with other friends that have cameras, photo shop employees and other members of Pixalo...

Good luck with your search.

Regards
Dean .

Re: newbie from Malaysia

That's an encouragement from the pixalo management to pop in. For a start I just purchased a Canon EOS 500D Kit II EF-S18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. Totally new with DSLR camera and so many category to learn. So I decided with potrait photography and close-up of plants. I understant the len is all-rounder, therefore seek advise for purchasing another lens for potrait photography with F1.4 or F1.8 appecture? please advise.

Re: newbie from Malaysia

welcome...

well in my vieuw, F1.4 or F1.8 apperture is not really needded, F 4.0 will do fine if you use studio-lightning so lenses are cheaper in that case.. whenever you are going in nature outside for portrets or full body.. a 1.4 or 1.8 is nice but more expensive, so my idea will be in having more lenses at F 4.0 then one F 1.4

also.. think what you really wanted to do... if you want to do only portret first... you have to take a lens in the area of 80 mm.. so when you have a crop camera (1.6 or 1.3) which are most available at the moment (like 400D 450D 500D 1000D 40D 50D 7D) you can buy the plastic-fantastich 50 mm F 1.8 mkII wich become then 80 mm on your camera... this lens is arround 90 dollars at the moment so very cheap..
If you are not able to move a lot then a zoom lens will be fine.. try to get one with one F-number so that it will be good whole the range.. like the 24-105 or 24 - 70.. these are more expences but the top of the bill..
when you buy a kit-lens you will have the feeling very fast to upgrade your lens because the quality is not so superb.... i use my 70 - 200 IS USM F4.0 for all my portrets.. because its really a nice sharp lens whole the range... (also my 50 mm for dark area's outside because of the F1.8) you can also find these lenses second hands.. but you need to know who is the user...

the person with the camera is making a good picture and the equipment will help to make it the best one.

so both is very important to think about..
