So my work has given me the wonderful job if new photographer (yay!) But there is one slight cavat. I have no clue to what DSLRs are good or bad. I currently have a Panasonic TZ30 which is a good camera but not suitable for this type of work im assuming. So I thought I would ask you guys and girls what the best option is for what I need to do. What I need to do. 1. take pictures in various light conditions for use on the web and printed promotional material. 2. Take close ups of a number of different plants (native species to give you an idea) 3. take wide shots of groups of plants in different angles to show them off. From What I have read/researched NIkon is better for this type of work then cannon? For lens I know I will need at least a macro lens and wide angle lens, maybe a fisheye for creative shots? im unsure of specs of camera bodies as im unsure what the budget will be (im guessing 2K for body + 2 lens). if I can go 2nd hand that will open a whole lot more options for what I can get for my budget.
