I need a good, used dslr for my online (Etsy) product shots. Hoping to pay $400 or less (including lens). Looking for advance on both camera/lens & where I should be searching to purchase.

I am an artist who recently started posting his work on Etsy and it has become very apparent that I need a better camera than the little point and shoot I am currently using. My camera knowledge is above novice level but not by much. My art ranges in size from roughly 35"x35", to smaller pieces approximately 7"x 7". Due to the nature of my work, I would like to take high resolutions shots to show off the detail.
Based on the research I've done, I believe a 4/3's micro would be the best fit for my needs; something like the Sony Nex5
, or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
however both of these are outside of my budget. This is why I am looking for used dslr recommendations.
- What new/used cameras would you recommend in the sub $400 (w/lens) category?
- For used cameras, do you have any recommended vendors/websites?
Thanks, MetaFilter. :)
