    B,

    Why didn't you hit the 17-55 f/2.8 IF ED instead? It's built for the DX sensor. And it's about $300 less.

    I did not want to start a new thread, but my wife has been bugging to get a new digital camera. We have a point and shoot digital, but i think the camera is pretty limited. I am looking to spend maybe up to $800 ish (maybe more for some lenses) for a better camera, maybe a SLR. It has been a real long time since I was involved in photography, in fact the last time I was involved I was in High School and developing my own images.

    Sorry about the hijacking of the thread, i can start a new one if needed.

    Help me you photogs.

    Best bet is to head to Samy's and heft a couple that they have on package deals. See which feels best and fits into your price budget. Many in that range have similar features, so it'll pretty much come down to feel, IMO...if you don't already have a brand you're familiar with, that is.

    The Lens rental was great! I loved it!

    It worked out great! For $80 plus shipping, I rented the lens for a week!

    I did an engagement session too with it... and while they came out okay, my subjects (specifically the bride to be) was not very cooperative. She is overweight (quite) and while that doesn't mean anything, she wasn't very comfortable in her skin and therefore looked miserable for a lot of the day.
