Not bad for a Nikon... Which version of 70-300 lens did you get? I heard it's worse than 70-210, which is of course understandable. Distortions at high zooms, slow AF, focus errors,...

I'm going to buy a Digital SLR...
I haven't had much time to do the research, but I'd like to have it before Tip-A-King next weekend.
My first inclination was to get the Canon Rebel XTi package with the crappy 18-55mm lens that comes with the package... Fully intending to eventually upgrade the lens.
Costco has it for $799, Best Buy has it for $899, but since I'm part of their stupid reward zone I get 12% off this weekend.
Does anyone have this model? Does anyone know where to get it cheaper? I'd rather to go a small business anyhow.
Anyone have recommendations for or against this model?
Any feedback you want to throw my way will be appreciated.

I like that Rebel, I know a lot of people who use it. Im a canon guy too, but Im not ready to make the jump to digi SLR.
did you look at bhphotovideo.com for price check? no tax and inexpensive, fast shipping.

I plan to upgrade my 6.3 mp Rebel to the Xti very soon. I highly recommend the Rebel line. You can't go wrong. The 18-55 lens isn't as crappy as everyone says. It's a versatile, all around decent lense. I still use it, in addition to a Sigma 55-200. I just shot about 200 pics on a recent road trip. Here's a pic from it.

The Digital Rebel XTI goes for about as much as the Nikon D70. I have both. Check out www.shopsunshine.com, they're also on ebay. The packages ROCK!

Most people I know that own either are happy, but I deal with a lot of pro-photos and they're usually strictly Canon or Nikon, they use stuff like RebelXTI or D70 for family vacations, and get out the big boys for work.

I just got the Rebel XTi last month and so far I really like it.

I got the Rebel last year for my birthday. I love it. But I'm a Canon person.
I found it at Costco for $799 and they were running a $100 off promotion at the time so I bought mine for $699.
I actually like the lens it comes with, takes very good pictures and I'm a scrapbooker, so thats important. I plan on getting a couple of different lenses later this year, but I'm still having fun playing with all the options on this one and getting to know everything.
