I simply cannot go to Africa without taking some decentish pictures of the local wildlife and surroundings
My beloved eos 350d has now been butchered so it can only take astronomy photos.
This has left me with the standard 15-55 lens that comes in the box and the 75-300 Zoom again they are in the garage and its cold - the second isn't really a brilliant lens and was cheap but it was bought for a purpose at the time.
Not sure whether just to but a cheapo 350d body and get a better zoom lens or to go for a better camera
I would want something for Macroish work as there are apparently phenomenal butterflies etc( to be honest I always thought the lens I got with the camera was pretty good for that) but also want something that could do the bird life justice as well
I do not have a huge budget, but I would like something I can get soonish to practice with before the trip - we are definitely talking 100's and not 1000's here
