through a series of (un)fortunate events - I am now in a position to upgrade bodies. and am looking for others thoughts
I have an xs body (broken now) and the following gear:
15-85 IS USM
remote, xtra batts, sd cards etc.
I'm pretty happy with the lens lineup (although I WILL have the 70-200 F4L eventually
with the canon loyalty the 50D is in my price range, as is a t2 body.
Either way - it looks like I'm out some of my gear - either I have to invest in new memory cards and batteries, or just cards. However, the battery for the 50D is everywhere so finding them should be fairly cheap as well. I use the remote often so that is a consideration too.
I could find a XSI, but since this is an insurance thing - I will likely have to find a store option to make sure everything is covered - and I haven't seen too many refurbed XSI's around, and no new old stock ones anywhere.
Video is not a decision factor for me. The wife loves to use the P&S for short clips and is afraid to touch the XS as is.
