    So, looking to get into this whole scene. Been messing around for some time with your standard digital camera and I figure it's time to upgrade. No better time than when paycuts and layoffs are going on after all right?

    Anyway, I'm looking for some entry level stuff to get started with and I've been seeing a lot (in this thread and others) about the XSi being a good starter. So, looking around and saw this one on ebay and I wanted to see if you guys thought it was a good deal for a "starter package". Any feedback or suggestions would be welcome.

    Hey Smyth. If you can swing a extra $200 I would buy this>

    NEW Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera Body +4 Lenses +16GB - eBay (item 120448503624 end time Aug-14-09 13:18:42 PDT)

    Its the newest in Simi-Pro technology and the 2 lenses listed with the kit are top notch glass. I own both lenses but my 55-200 is VR. That Canon listed is over a year and a half old whereas the D5000 was released just last month.

    The D5000 body itself was rated #1 in PopPhoto and American Photo in the simi-pro category just last month.

    If you're a Canon guy then ignore the link.

    I know very little about Nikon, but I would guess that while two of the lenses are OK, the rest of the stuff is utter crap and/or crap you don't need. As someone new to DSLR's, keep this in mind: lenses are a FAR more important part of the photography equation than the camera body. There's no point in getting a good body without good lenses, you might as well stay with a point and shoot. The body may last you a couple of years, good glass may last a couple of decades - or more.

    Food for thought...

    Appreciate the link. I'm not a slave to any brand really. I've used Canon's all my life, but that's just because there are so many and they're the most popular. I've heard great things about the Nikon's as well.

    Having said that, a couple other questions.

    1. What is the better technology giving me in that camera? Or, in the alternative, where is a solid review/information page that I can read up on for myself?
    2. This would be an even better deal on the same camera/lenses then yes? Looks like it's the same thing, but you get another lens with it. Fore less money even.

    I'd go for the camera with the canon kit lens and then look at a telephoto later.

    Either that or buy my 30D for cheap.

    Heres the link from dpreview.com comparing the Canon XSi and the Nikon D5000 side by side

    Digital Cameras Side-by-Side, 2 cameras: Digital Photography Review

    that being said... the D5000 is packed with a few more features, such as the HD video, and the swivel screen. I'd go that route, just for that, (besides the fact that I shoot with Nikon....).

    Also, +1 on the 18-55 lens included in the kit. That lens is money.


    Oh... and the Nikon is a year newer... so that is why it has more features.
