a few useful websites

buying equipment:

cameras & lenses:reviews

Buying equipment is a matter of individual preference. My camera bodies & lenses have long been bought through one company:

www.mpbphotographic.co.uk

They  offer part-exchange, sell second-hand (with accurate descriptions) and brand new. Specialists in Canon & Nikon, they also stock a good range of other brands.  Very efficient.

There are loads of sites out there

to choose from . Here are a few

who I have found to be totally reliable.
