Only used P&S cameras, but have done so for years. This will be my first SLR camera. So, essentially a novice.
Pictures will be both indoor as well as outdoor with the majority of indoor shots with low-light or rather want to avoid using a flash.
Looking at Canon's EOS Rebel XSi for a while. Although the kit comes with the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens I am planning to get just the body and purchase the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 lens.
I was just about set on the XSi, but then started to look at the new 50D. This also comes with a kit (18-200 mm IS lens) but thinking of getting just the body and purchase the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 lens.
Am I going to see a difference in picture quality to justify the HUGE cost difference? For some reviews I seen on web sites comparing pictures, I didn't see too much of a difference if any.
Why should I get the XSi over the 50D?
Why should I get the 50D over the XSi?
Achieving the best picture (with minimal interaction) is my number 1 priority.
I was wondering how you feel about your decision half-a-year later? Thanks
