    Which would you guys go for?

    1: NEW Pentax K110D - with 18-55mm Lens Kit - $399

    2: USED Canon Digital Rebel - with 18-55mm Lens, battery charger, and camera bag - $350

    The Pentax is cool because it would be brand new, and there are tons of inexpensive pentax lenses out there that I could take advantage of. But it only has a hot shoe, no built-in flash, and no bag or anything.

    Canon is good because it's a Canon, and it comes with a few extras, and is cheaper. But it's used, and older, so I take my chances with that, plus lenses are more expensive.

    I don't do any kind of pro work, just hobby stuff. I'm familiar with SLR's but just 35mm, so that's not an issue. I'm just looking to step up to digital, and want to get my foot in the door without a huge investment. What do you all think?

    if you look around long enough, you can probably find a used rebel xt for around $400-450 and it will be a step up from either one of those. :o i bought my xt used from someone on potn and i got it for $460 shipped.
