Canon EOS D60

D60
Review Date: Aug 8, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Durability(Don't let other fool you; try it!), value for money; equivalent to the 10D in almost every aspect! Low noise from ISO100-400.
Cons:
The lack of manual white balance setting the 10D has; more AF points which makes composition better in 'action' photography. Too much noise from ISO 800 onwards.

This is my first DSLR; and it has taken me the whole nine yards; it brought me many great photos even with third party lenses! Now it's been seven months and I'm still bonded to this camera; I just simply love this piece of machine. Can't dream of leaving it for another - even though it has technological limitations. But if you know how to handle this little baby; it can deliver results. You can see my work here:

All the photos there are taken with my D60.


 
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO IF HSM

Review Date: Apr 11, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $540.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Price, Built(EX series), HSM(USM equivalent), tripod mount and fast aperture(f2.8)
Cons:
Not to tack sharp wide open(Which zoom is)

I recently bought this lens a month ago and ever since using it, I love it! Simply a wonderful lens when you cannot afford the Canon 70-200 IS version. This actually matches up without the IS and the contrasty and sharp features that the canon has over the Sigma. Something about the EX series from sigma really screams 'professional'! and it does look pro when you use it! But overall, it's a great lens, I love it. Highly recommended for those who want a bang for their buck!
