Guys, I'm going to be honest, I've only lurked this board a few times, but lately have been doing so more and more often and want to get a camera. Pic related was taken by a friend at a racetrack. I'd like to shoot some motorsport too, and have saved up a bit to buy a DSLR and a lens.
I've been gathering some info of the cameras I can afford and it boils down to two: EOS 700D and Pentax K-50. I was going to buy the Pentax because for the same price as the Canon I get an extra 50-200 lens apart from the 18-50 that both include.
A couple of days ago I read the sticky and have been talking to everyone I know that's into photography. Some professionals even. They all recommend Canon. Nevertheless the Pentax is better on paper and includes another lens. Canon has Magic Lantern going for it though (I really don't know if it's actually any good, but some people praise it a lot)
I'm sure this board sees heaps of posts like this one, and you are probably sick of them, but please help me out, I did my best to be as little a noob as I can be, and just want to buy the right thing.
