I'm new on the forum and need some advice on my purchasing my first DLSR. I have been using the FZ-35 since the past two years and it was a great learning curve. But its time to move on and upgrade now. Plus i'm getting a pretty good deal for my FZ-35, which kinda gave me the final push to get on the DSLR bandwagon.
I'm basically confused between the EOS 550 and newly launched EOS 650D. I'm not even considering the EOS 600D since it's not worth the extra 10k over the EOS 550D.
The major differences the the EOS 650D has over the EOS 550D include:
- A Flip-Out Touch Screen
- More Cross-Type Focus Points
- Video Autofocus
- In-Camera HDR
- Better ISO Sensitivity
- Faster Burst Rate
What matters for me is the 'Faster Burst Rate', 'More Cross-Type Focus Points' and 'Better ISO Sensitivity' with the latter being the most important. Is ISO sensitivity that good? Are all these features worth the 20-24k extra? Coz I think it it would be wise for me to save-up for better lenses instead.
Also, another thing that worries me is that the EOS 550D has been declared as a EOL product? Will that have any effect on my purchase? I want to buy something that will last me for alteast the next 5-6 years... or maybe even more (support and after market accessories wise)
