been lurking and reading and I want to get into SLR 35mm photography. I thought I had it narrowed to my first 'real' camera to be one that was manual, a 24mm or so, 50mm and a 135mm lens, grab the Kodak book or something similar, but now I'm a bit confused and was asking for some advice.
I was kind of leaning towards an x-570/x700 body and go from there. but after reading post after post about broken ones, I'm holding off.
So, other than (from what I've read) the Pentax MX or maybe the K1000, any other Manual SLRs you'd recommend for a rookie, that can get together a good reliable system and start out? I'm finishing my master degree the next fall, which opens up time and money for travel, and I'm especially awed by landscapes, nature, wild animals, THAT sort of photography. candid shots of people as well, my wife scrapbooks family pics so this seems to go hand in hand
I already do digital, but this seems like a challenge to create, and I'd love some hard hitting advice.
any help greatly appreciated
