I'm looking for a good camera, that will last me for a while and capable of low light photo, mainly friends and places and I really hate to have to use the flash which make the photos horrible and not natural that the reason why I'm moving towards a DSLR.
Also the camera will have to be able to shoot decent quality 1024HD video with continues AF with a good speed.
I've done my home work and found 4 potential camera and 3 lens, I will probably get a 70-200 later on if I feel the need. My understanding is that if you want a good low light photo it's all about the lens, therefore 17-50 / 55 F2.8 seems to be an ideal choice, I guess this will also have a positif impact on the video quality, i've read several review about lens and the tamron seems to be doing a really good job and it's also much cheaper (it's seems to be noisy, but i could not car less about that).
Regarding the camera, I'm also trying not to spend silly money for an amateur usage but when it comes to quality and good video the Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 17-50 F2.8 seems to be ticking all the boxes, but it's on the paper and I don't have any experience, just been reading review so far.
What do you guys think? did I miss something obvious? I would be happy to spend less for the camera so if you reckon that another one could do the job, please let me know!
Nikon 17-55mm AF-S f/2.8G IF-ED Dx £1064
Tamron SP 17-50mm F2.8 Di II LD Nikon AF Zoom Lens £299
Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS Lens - Nikon AF £569
Thanks for your help!
