Why don't you buy the 400D body only and buy a better lens separately?

How 'bout the anti-shake thing. All the second hand lenses will be without anti-shake. Whereas it's built into the Samsung body. Or is it just a gimicky feature?
It works. It doesn't perform miracles, but it's a useful tool. Less so the longer the lens though - that's where having IS in the lens comes into it's own.
I am not brand snob but Canon or Samsung? Ummm.. which one is the world leader in the camera industry?
Or, more importantly, which one is going to be the world leader in the camera industry?
Drew. This is an "hearts and minds" choice for you. Its been said before, but handle both cameras, and which one makes you feel "I want to take pictures with you". It will always be a compromise whatever you choose. If you feel unhappy with your choice, you could always try and take it back, or sell it secondhand.
I'd go along with that. If the camera doesn't feel right in your hands you won't really be happy with it. I found that with my two Praktica cameras - the BCA felt just right whereas the TL2 just didn't have the same chemistry although it was nice enough. Consequently I used the BCA far more than I did the TL2.
Same with your choice now. Get to hold both of them. Weigh them up and decide for yourself which one feels the most comfortable to hold and operate. Your instinct will tell you which one to get .. there again I'm not being swayed by marketing ..
i do find the 400d abit small in my hands but i prefer having a smaller camera than a bigger one.
within time i will be investing in a battery grip which will solve my problems
Hey the_drewster, where oh where are you seeing a 400D for £400 [exl. the £50 cash back from Canon]??? I'm desperate to get one!!
Every Little Helps
But note the key phrase on the Tesco page:
Sorry, this product is temporarily out of stock
Yeh, pal, since I posted to this forum. I've already decided I'm going for the Samsung (which is really a Pentax K10!!!!)
I'm not one to dig up old topics but...
I've just been looking on a site and I'm too weighting up the both the 400D and the Samsung.
Only reason I'm even thinking of this is Samsung are doing a £100 cash back,now from what I've seen the Samsung gives a better noise ate higher ISO.
But this could be my eyes, or the current lighting when the pictures were taken.
Quote: These are pictures taken by the K10. Can the Canon 400D match them, 'cause frankly speaking I haven't seen any.
I think you will find if the same tog took the same pics with a Canon 400D, you could not separate them.
