I have an older model Canon Rebel XT that I've been using for years. I also currently own a 50mm lens, and a 24-70 also. I am looking to upgrade the camera, and maybe grab another lens. Over the past year or so, I've been finally using it a lot more. I have shot some small paying jobs also. Mostly portraiture. Any suggestions on where to go next? Thank you!
Anything in the Digital Rebel line will be an affordable and useful upgrade, with controls that are similar to the XT's. The current T5i is a good starting point, and the older T4i, T3i and T2i will work well.
However, be aware that the newer cameras will have hidden upgrade costs. All use SD memory cards while the XT used CompactFlash. Also, you'll need to purchase new batteries and chargers. However, all lenses and flashes from the XT will work wih the newer Digital Rebel models.
