Hi Friends,

Being no much exposure to SLRs (Played a lot on PnS :thumbup:)

Now I have decided to purchase Canon 7D and 100-400mm L-lens.

Can you please individually contribute your views / buying suggestions etc.

Also if anybody knows current costing, would be great.

Also which precautions to be taken while buying, any hands-on checks ?

Help me please :confused1:

A great combination! Good for mammals and large birds.

Are you buying new or second hand?

100-400 costs about 81K + rupees with bill.

If you buy from a reputed place, the camera and lens should be in packed condition. It should not have fungus. Anyway, the camera and lens when bought with bill will have warranty.
