I'm quite noob and would need some help.
I'm about to buy a Canon EOS 600D here in the UK, but I have the possibility to buy the Kiss X5 for a much better price.
From what I know, both cameras are exactly the same, only the model name engraved on the camera body is different.
The Menu of the Kiss X5 is in Japanese but can be configured to English, so that's not a problem.
My main concern is: will I be able to make future firmware upgrades ?
Are the firmwares provided by Canon for EU and Japanese models exactly the same ?
What do you guys think of my idea of buying the Kiss X5 instead of the 600D ?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
