88mm (35mm equiv.), F/5.6, 1/200s, ISO400

The only advantage of using a small body and lightweight zoom lens is for the sake of convenience. It won't break your back after carrying the whole day. The EOS350D attached with EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 II was with me the whole day. It weighs more like a prosumer zoom camera (under 1kg), but the picture quality which it can deliver is way better. The above photo was taken spontaneously when I came across this butterfly next to the Cineleisure's flea market. The close focusing distance of the kit lens coupled with the 1.6x crop factor of the EOS350D yields acceptably large magnification ratio. If I'm not wrong, you can still get yourself a 350D kit at just RM1800; Or if you have a little bit more to spend, go for the 400D kit at RM2400. Start your photography journey from there...
