Kit upgrade

Sometime early next year i plan on going for a kit upgrade, one of the suggestions i got was to hand in my complete current kit on an exchange sort of a deal.

My current kit is a Canon 1000D, kit lens (18-55mm), Canon 50mm 1.4, Canon EFS 75-300mm USM, Tamron 18-200mm and some assorted odds and ends Smile, the idea was to exchange the whole lot for a Canon 50D with a Canon 24-105mm L series lens, given that i mostly walk the streets is this a good choice to go with ? Or should i just upgrade the body, save for the L lens and go for it later on, while keeping the current kit as a backup.

Cheers

personally, i would upgrade the body.... and once you know it is not faulty, then sell you old one privately..... you will get more for it. Upgrade lenses as and when you can afford them... and then sell your old ones privately. Smile

Well I was asked by some callow youth, right outside my house, to perform a rather unsavoury act for 10 the other day!

Many years ago when I was a Youf, I would never have dared to talk to a lady like that. It's a sign of the times.....a lack of respect for each other.

I did actually find it rather funny and a strange kind of compliment - I'm probably best part of 30 years older than he was. I refused his offer, shot off into the house and locked the door Smile It is a shame however the way times have changed - where did it all go wrong......

Sorry Devlin for taking your thread off track Smile

I'm afraid it's a failing of mine - encouraging other people to take threads off on a tangent Smile

Ah but we're lovely with it Smile

Time to take the fisheye into town - I think I'll go to the top of the carparks and see what the view is like.
