Yesterday I bought myself a new camera. After doing some research to see which camera would suit my needs, I found out that the Canon EOS 550D (also known as the Canon Rebel T2i for our American friends) was the best choice! So far I'm very happy with it!
I bought a special set which includes the body, a Canon 18-55mm lens and an additional 70-300mm lens from Tamron. Of course I couldn't help myself but to compare the two lenses, and see which one is better for photographing miniatures. The additional Tamron lens is a so-called Macro lens, but it more for getting things from far away very close - it's not very comfortable when photographing miniatures, because I have to sit like 2 meters away from the mini!
Anyway, here's two pictures I took with the different lenses. It's up to you to decide which one you like better! Keep in mind I'm a total noob with this camera - I'm still finding out how this thing works!

These pictures haven't been edited yet, except for some cropping to keep them reasonably sized!
Please let me know what you guys think!
