Canon 20D with Tamron AF 70-300mm

Post by Bradsim » Mon Sep 28, 2015 8:00 pm

Hi guys

I'm seeking a camera to replace my fujifilm s8200, would the above be suitable. I'm not looking for anything spectacular, just a good improvement.The asking price is £175.

Probably a massive improvement over a bridge camera but price is way over the odds

Have a look at MPB photography who specialise in guaranteed used Canon and Nikon
You could probably buy both for under £130

Or look at Ebay

The lens can be had for £89 new!

I have a 20D which was given to me by a friend who bought himself a pair of 50D's. It's a very robust camera but uses older technology. It's always in the bag I take flying with me to shoot aircraft on the ground wherever we get to. Good pics but think it's due for a service, clean and re-calibration on exposures. I have a Tamron lens but dont rate it for moving items, seems very slow to focus and doesnt hold the subject like my Canon lenses do. The Canon lenses aren't the big white ones just he cheap range (IS though) and work for me. So basically unless the camera has just had a full Canon service look elsewhere would be my advice. I also have a 350D and 450D which still give good service. Don't do enough to merit anything more expensive and I spend my pension on flying! Hope that helps.
