Sometimes this forum makes me shake my head in disgust. The OP said a $600 budget and we get recommendations for a 5D with an L lens?

So some real recommendations around $600 new, are:

XS with kit lens + cheap telephoto like the Tamron 70-300 or a 50mm 1.8.
XSI with only the kit lens

Used, you have a lot of options. I'd probably look at a 20D or 30D with an 18-55 IS or similar lens.

Go for a classic 5D with a 17-40L they are great from what I hear!

And for $600.00, you would be crazy not to:rolleyes:

Just be aware that getting the slr won't instantly make you photos better. You're going to be losing some features/benefits from you p&s (such as the incredibly large dof and fast shutter speeds, due to their small sensor size and fixed lens). I would HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest/recommend getting the book 'Understanding Exposure' as this will help you a lot.

Oh yeah, my slr vote would be for an XTi/XSi, or 30D and up. I wouldn't go for an XT/XS or the 10/20Ds.

Good luck!
