im looking for a dslr on the cheap. im pretty new so i dont want to invest heavily in case i end up getting bored or something, but i want more control and quality than my smartphone can give. my picks arent the absolute cheapest there is, eg im not interested in £70 bridge cameras as i want the opportunity to swap lenses in future. that being said, these are all between 130 and 160(ish) gbp(on amazon). so far ive made a list of five:
olympus e420 with 14-42mm
canon eos 1100d with 18-55mm
sony a200 with "sony 55mm 3.5-5.6/18-70 lens"
(pretty sure he means sony alpha dt 18-70mm kit lens)
nikon d3100 with 18-55mm
pentax k10d with 18-55mm
ive looked through some reviews but i dont see many major differences (prob idk what to look for). should i go for highest megapixel or are there important things i should know? (eg ive heard canon bad idk specifically what tho) also any other suggestions welcome, preferably below 160ish gbp, dont want to go above 180 (i saw a canon 600d for £201 but idk if its significantly better so ive excluded it for now). i havent bothered scouring ebay because ive been slowly figuring stuff out for the last 2 months, and the guaranteed returns are nice, once i have a better idea what to get ill check ebay but not expectin miracles. my main interest is still life photography, dabbling in street, cityscapes, landscapes; i mainly want a lot of practice rn. i dont care at all about video capability, as my phone can do that well enough in the exceedingly rare chance i want a video. size isnt a concern really.
