I found a money tree! Well, I didn't "find" it. And it's more like a money shrub than a tree, but I am oh so grateful for it! My grandmother left me a good bit of money for an inheritance---more than a year's salary---and it was quite a bit more than we expected. Not that we "expected" any. I hate for her to be gone, I'd rather her here than have the money. But my grandfather invested wisely and left a legacy for his family, all the way down to his great-grandchildren.
Hubby said I should take a couple thousand and buy a new camera and lenses before we sock the rest away into a retirement fund.
So let the mudslinging begin. Give me your recommendations.
System? Not entry-level, not professional. I'd rather skimp on the body so I can get the lenses I want. But I'd like one that handles up to 800 ISO without too much noise.
Lenses? I must have a wide-angle, telephoto, and fast lens.
Current system? Should I try to sell it? Is it worth paying someone to clean the sensor on the body before I try to sell it?
Can't wait to hear your input.
