Heres the deal at Adorama With free shipping!
I have never had a issue with refurbushed Canon products, plus the great customer service of Adorama.
Regular Price $1,199.00
Canon has some lenses designed to only work on 1.3 crop cameras like the 650D or 7D. They are labeled EF-s.
Canon EF lenses work on all Canon DSLR's.
Now, Canon has the EOS M Camera out, and it uses a totally different set of lenses, but there are adapters to use EF lenses with it.
So ... for maximum flexability, you can buy EF lenses, but you often get more for your money with EF-S.
you mean 1.6 crop...
Start saving your pennies for either the efs 17-55 2.8 IS or the efs 15-85. Buy lenses (preferably used) for your current camera and don't concern yourself with a future "what if".this is the best advice and both these lenses hold their value extremely well so if in a year or so you do want to go full frame you will be able to sell these for only a minimal loss
Sorry, but I really didn't mean for this to turn into a tech specs opinion post. Maybe I wasn't clear enough at the beginning, and if that is the case I do apologize.
The question I have is this; I have recently watched the new/second-hand price of my camera go down a few hundred dollars and I was wondering if anyone believes that with the release of the next in line, will my 60D drop in resale value again or would I be relatively safe to wait and sell when the new one comes out?
A couple questions/observations to that point:
Is the 60D your only camera body? If so, if you sell your camera before the announcement of a replacement, how long are you OK with being without a camera? Obviously, if your income depends on the camera, it's a different answer than if it's for enjoyment only. But even your enjoyment has value (perhaps not monetarily).
The 60D isn't an extremely valuable body new (coming from a person who has two 60D's and who is very happy with them). If a 70D is announced tomorrow, how much will used value drop on a 60D body? $100? $200? Let's say $200, just for fun. That means if you sell today, you can cash in on $200 extra. However, if you sell today, and a new body isn't announced as soon as you think/like, does that $200 cover the cost of renting/borrowing/buying a new camera if you have an immediate need? We're talking rumors and potentially vaporware here. Without a concrete, announced, and available product, no one can make solid recommendations.
A camera in the hand is worth more two me than one on the internets.
