First off, I'd like to apologise because I'm sure you get these threads half a million times a day.
I'm looking at buying my first DSLR camera. I've had some experience with DSLR's in the past, more specifically the Canon 60D and 600D. As such, I'm looking to stay close to home. I've found a 600D coupled with 18-55mm IS II and 55-250mm II lenses for $800, which is pushing the top end of my budget.
Ideally, I'd like to eventually move into macro photography as those sorts of images fascinate me, however, I do not have the money to buy a proper macro lens at the moment.
Is my choice a solid one? I'd be happy to take suggestions for alternate options.
I'd also like to say how helpful the tutorials on this site are. They've proven invaluable when I've been borrowing camera's in the past.
Thanks for any help in advance.
