Hey, this is my first post and I was wondering if paying £462.00 in UK for an A550, 18-55mm Sam and 55-200 mm Sam lens was a good price. Got it off eBay as a mail order return. Should be comming sometime today and I can't wait to get back from Uni to try it out.
It's my first DSLR so a second question would be if the A550 is a good starting camera that I can grow into or if I will be overwhelmed with it all.
Thanks, Ross

Congrats on that mate. I am myself an owner of the A550 and I like it pretty much.

All cameras nowadays (except for full-frames, the A550 is not one of those) has an automatic mode so you can basically put any camera in the hands of a beginner and he'll get better pics than he ever would with a random compact so no worries. If it's too much, take it in small steps.

Firstly use the Automatic until you get to know the camera.

Move onto P (Program automatic), this lets you do the basic settings but the camera will decide on aperture and shutter speed.

When you feel that you know what kind of pictures you want to take and what you should do to achieve them, go try out the A or S mode.

Sorry for bad english... really tired atm...
