I have a canon 1100D, and i am serious about photography. now should i upgrade to a better body and then start developing on lenses or should i first get a few lenses and then buy a better body? i first want a 50mm 1.8f lens. so will this give good results with a 1100D ? or should i get a better body ? thanks!

there's no sense in upgrading your equipment till you figure out what your needs are, and that will happen by taking more photos, working when you shoot them to get the results you want, and then learning what it takes to get that result.  read and learn, watch youtube and other videos explaining the basics and less basic factors involved in photography.  learn about aperture, shutter speed, ISO - how changing each affects your photos.  check out photography books and see whose photos speak to you, which ones influence you. you could spend a LOT of money and still not have the equipment that will work for you.  price doesn't mean much - there are $1500 lenses that won't get me the shots i want, yet there are $300 lenses that will.  learn what kind of shots you want to take, what you need to know or use to get them and go from there. the canon 50 1.8 is great - a really good value, and a good way to learn about faster lenses, as well as to shoot in lower light.  and considering the ...

The 1100D is a perfectly good DSLR and you do need to develop not just by getting lenses but more so by developing your knowledge of and use of technique in photography. The 50mm f1.8 is a very good lens, however it's not clear you need that particular lens. Personally I find it a great focal length, but I'm not sure you understand why you would want one. I think what you probably need first and foremost is a good book on basic photography technique. There's a book called "Understanding Exposure" by Brian Peterson which is widely recommended.

You don't need new body for now.. 1100D is pretty decent for  a start(or even further). If you'd like to get 50mm f1.8 lens then get it, because this lens is affordable while it provide you good result.  This lens is also fit other Canon DSLR in case you'd like to upgrade to a better body.. so your investment is safe. In the mean time, start shooting and reading more about photography or take class... by then, you'll understand the limitation of the camera and the lens so in the future you can decide if you need new body or other lens to suit your need.

TCL-X100 compatibility with the next generations of X100n

TLC sure looks like good piece of optics and it's designed to work with existing members of X100 family. What about the future? Can this converter be used in whatever future is waiting X100 series? In transition from X100 to X100s the optical scheme was not changed and TCL is tailored to match that. Will it be so also in next models? And what if the next upgrade means also bigger sensor and therefore different optics? This converter looks promising but its difficult to justify this investment for not knowing the usability of this glass with the next models. -:- Marek T3hh

This is one of the most wrong ways to think about photographic equipment, IMO. You buy the equipment you need, if you need it and when you need it. You don't buy it with one eye on the future, because the future is unpredictable. In this case, if you want to use the 50mm perspective from the X100/X100S, buy the TCL-X100. If you need it, but decide to wait one of two things will happen: 1. It will fit the new model, and you'll be kicking yourself about all those images you missed while waiting 2. It won't fit the new model, and you'll be kicking yourself about all those image you missed while waiting Either way, you lose out photographically. Continue Reading

Very true. Think about it this way. Only buy a camera that does what you need it to do right now. Don't buy a camera that "sort of" works with the plan on upgrading to the next model that may or still may not work for you. If an X100 or X100s + TLC works for you now, why shouldn't it work for you 3 or 4 years from now? Cameras don't go bad or become obsolete as new models come out. Continue Reading

Of course it can! Just like any other accessories from past time cameras... Doesn't matter since this is x-compatible which means ALL future X cameras will support it. See above... Continue Reading

Old mid level or new entry level?

Hello, I'm thinking of buying a dslr as a second body and I'm on a budget, so I was wondering what would be a better decision, to buy a used mid level dslr like Nikon D80, or a new entry level like D3100, or even Canon 1100D? What are your thoughts on that?

If you're going with older mid-level, you'd be better off with a D70s: the D80 matrix meter is infuriating. I got rid of my D80 because of that. The D90 might be a better choice than either the D70s or D80 depending on your budget. Continue Reading

According to your gear list, you're using Olympus. Why on earth would you wanna invest in a Nikon/Canon system then??? Continue Reading

Yes, I'm using Olympus as my main camera, but I'm going to need a second body - nothing too fancy, but something with good performance, that can be trusted, and cheap. Of course the perfect scenario would be to have an Olympus, or Panasonic camera to match the system, but unfortunately there's nothing within my budget that meets my requirements. That's why I thought about buying some good used dslr. Continue Reading
