Getting my first camera
 
I’m thinking about getting my first camera

And I’m looking at the x-t100 and the x-t20

I have a question
is the 15-45 lens good enough, because that’s the lens that the camera comes with

Is it a good deal?

X-t100 w/15-45 brand new export set with freebies around 660-700

X-t20 w/15-45 brand new local set 858 with free sd card and hand grip 850


Never used a camera before please advise!

"Good enough" is relative.
Even a phone is good enough for most things nowadays, so the only person that can ans this qs is yourself.

What do you wanna do with it and are you sure a phone cant do it?

Usually as far as 1st camera goes, or especially for those starting photography, my advise would to always be to get 2nd hand or something cheap.
Cos no point to get something expensive only to find out youre not into it and have to go thru the trouble of selling it sometime down the road at a reduced price.

There are a lot of relatively new DSLRs on Carousell at unbelievably low prices.
With many sellers going for hand phone cameras and ditching their DSLRs, it is nice to pick up a 2nd hand DSLR to learn proper photography.

IMHO.
It will be a good deal if it serves your purpose for the next 5 years,

Some tips
a) see if the kit lens is "wide" or "tele" enough for your needs.
b) look for a physical camera and simulate taking a photo with it. E.g, small hands may prefer large cameras or large hands may prefer small cameras. :s22:

My experience since yesteryears when I travel for leisure.

Before
Samsung Note I / Canon S90 / Nikon D90
- The mobile camera cannot make it. S90 mainly indoors especially indoor low-light.

Now
Samsung Note10+ / Nikon D7100
- Note10+ replaces the Canon S90 - simplicity. Note10+ wider angle but less zoom.

P.S. Please try to buy the first camera as if you are buying the last.

Apsc DSLR will most likely lose out to the mirrorless system in the years to come.
End up only FF format remaining.
