Hey guys! (Posting a new thread since I'm in a different dilemma now, not DSLR v. DSLR, DSLR v. Mirrorless) I've never touched a DSLR or mirrorless before but I've decided to get into photography because I love taking pictures, albeit it has been on my iphone. I've decided to take this step because I travel a lot and with my Kenyan safari coming up I don't want to miss out on lifelong pictures. Please remember, I don't yet understand a lot of photography lingo and terminology. Here's my dilemma, I need to choose between these two: - Rebel t5i with kit lens + Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens (This would be $720 total, because there is a deal right now on Amazon for $150 off the lense if I buy the camera) OR - Sony Nex 6 for $740 (Mirrorless camera) + some sort of lens better for wildlife photography (Amount of money = ???) Also, would those Canon lens (55-250) be good for wildlife photography on a safari? I can't afford much better, and I'm not a pro photographer that really needs much fancier anyways. And would the lens on the Sony suck for wildlife photography (the kit ones 16-55 zoom lens)? Currently leaning towards the Canon set up since my good friend has a Canon and so she could teach me how to use it / let me borrow some of her lens sometimes. I don't plan on buying the camera until mid April so if you guys have suggestions please let me know! But leaning towards the Canon! Thank you!!
