  • Can someone give me an updated review of Canon EOS A2E?

    I am interested in a camera with a high optical zoom - want it because I love doing portraits and wildlife photography. This will be my first non-point and shoot camera, so I want to keep myself to a low budget, but get to try something quality. I have read a lot of positive reviews of canon A2E and in the second hand market, costs under 150$. But all these reviews are from early 2000's and I would like to hear from a a current user how they find the camera, and also, given my budget and aspirations, an opinion on whether this would be the best option for me or whether there is anything else that might work better for me. thanks..
