The best choices, with the most extensive lenses and camera choices would be Canon or Nikon. Nikon's D70 is their entry level digital SLR, while Canon's is the Digital Rebel. The Rebel is cheaper, but also has lower build quality than the Nikon and a slightly slower burst mode. The image quality between the cameras is pretty similar. To compare and feel their build quality and ergonomics, try them out at a camera store. Decide which one fits your price point and make the choice.
