just to get an opinion.
I have a canon rebel xti 10.0mp. still with a tamron 28-75mm lens. is it time to upgrade the body, or the lens alone, or both.
if your opinion is lens, anyone can recommend another one for overall shots ?

Only you can decide that... have you really explored all avenues with your camera?

Whats your reason for asking?

[ my opinion ]
Your camera is only as relevant as you make it, its all about what you want from it and whether it can deliver what you want.

never really explored the art of editing pics using a programme like photoshop etc. i usually shoot raw, and play with light using the various settings and my external flash an EXII. But i feel like those tamron lens hold me back sometimes as i keep have to switch between 28-75mm and 70-300mm. then there's the overall quality, it's not consistent, too many out of focus shots when taken quickly, light issues, sharnPess and overall 'life' in the shot. Doh get me wrong sometimes it impresses me and i feel vindicated to hang on to this model longer.

@Lucian-2nr- i feel now that i can take a better shot and the camera and lens hold me back to put it simply, BUT i am self taught with no course training etc so i question my own opinion.

So it's just to get an opinion of what users rocking with these days and if they still think it worth it's salt now a days.

See why I bumping people thread when they are selling their 55-200? It is sharp as a razor wide open. I think every nikon shooter should have one, unless they upgrade to faster/ longer glass..

Sounds like you need to refresh your skills, rather than upgrade your equipment.
Even if you upgrade your lens from a Tamron to something like a Canon L series, or if you upgrade from the XTi to a 60D - what's the point of doing so if you're gonna still "see" photographs and take photographs in the same manner? All you'll really get is sharper versions of the same old style.



I've had that same problem many times over, and what I learned from discussing with other photog's is to refresh your own viewpoint, your own "photographer's eye" and you'll see a difference in your pics.


Bottom line: it's usually the photographer, and not the equipment. The fix: Inspiration, learning from others, and sincere effort to expand your own creativity.
Have a look at these links - they helped me alot, hopefully they'll help you to broaden your perspective and change the way you shoot (before you plunk down a ton of money).

http://www.digital-photography-school.com/ (this is one of my faves and it turned my shooting around).

http://www.strobist.blogspot.com/ Learn how to play with light, and completely change your photo's! It definitely worked for me.

http://photo.net/learn/



These next two guys inspired me when I was in a slump, thinking that I couldn't possibly get any better in my photography. Back then I was convinced that I should buy a better camera and that I needed better lenses. I did actually buy a better camera (went from a Nikon D40 to a Nikon D200) but for different reasons than my original intentions.

BTW, my camera is now 5 years old, and the oldest lens in the cupboard is from 1977.

I use Lightroom 2.1 for most editing purposes, and for special stuff I use Photoshop CS4.
And I also use a bunch of tutorials for references.

Chemical - congrats on your new purchase man, you must really be excited! Nothing can beat the smell of new electronics :D.

Remember the basic rules of creativity - experiment, learn from others, make mistakes and never give up!

If you only knew the power of what that SB800 can do.... stuff like this:

and this...

and also this....

Here's an example of what a few hours of reading and browsing on the internet and a strong drive to learn and be creative can do for you (plus a bit of savings):

Welcome to the world of photography man, and also welcome to the world of off-camera lighting. All you need now is a couple more SB800's or even SB600's and you'll have a chance to take your photography to high places!
