So I've been researching for about a year now, and I've narrowed it down in this order:
1) Canon Rebel XTi
2) Nikon D60
3) Canon Rebel XSi
4) Nikon D80
The last two though, are only possible if I can scrounge up a little more money, as my budget as of now is around $600.
I've found a couple of deals on the XTi, including this one: http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/ele/768543657.html
hich Includes the body, the stock lens, and an extra 75mm-300mm for $475, which leaves me a little dough to buy a couple accessories.
Alternatively, I could buy this,http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/pho/775683590.html
which includes a shit load of accessories, the stock lens, for $540, then I could save up a little and pick up a bigger lens used from somewhere.
I haven't really been able to find a good deal on a D60 or D80 in my budget so far yet, and honestly the XSi is a little out of my price range but any help would be highly appreciated.
