I bought the Canon 40d I'd been looking at this afternoon and added a Canon 75-300 mm f4-5.6 and a Tamron 28-75 mm f2.8. The cost was $800. This is probably too high but I wanted to get it locally from our camera group store to establish a relationship there. The 40d pride met what I could get at KEH. I don't know about the lenses though.
Anyway, here I am at home with the manual trying to find out how to use this thing. It's my first DSLR. I am so tickled I could just dance!
Lots of folks on several forums helped me with advice on cameras, where to shop and good vs. bad prices. If you're one of them, a big thanks!
