so I asked the resident pro, but you know he never responds to pm's!!!

Any of you recently bought a digital SLR?

I am looking to buy one for my wife for Christmas. She doesn't like the little pocket digitals we have and keeps using the old Rebel EOS and I hate paying to get pictures developed!!!

Mostly for pictures of the kids etc, but I like the idea of being able to use it at games etc and wildlife etc.

Been to a few really good review websites, but now I'm looking for personal opinions/experiences.

Thanks

Cannon EOS Rebel 12 Megapixel and up. Available now at most good stores.

They cost, but worth every damn penny....trust me.

You can't go wrong with that........and yes you are welcome.

Not bad at all. Did it come with the free accessories of the one with the link I posted? Bag, etc.??

That is still a great deal on a 15 MP Cannon.
