    :rofl:

    assuming the threadstarted didn't know about the < > signs:
    get a 350d with the kit lens
    or a used 300d with a better lens

    if he did:
    get a 1 series digital and all the lenses from canon with a red strip around them

    lol that > sign wasn't meant to be there :hs: I was typing in a drunken state last night. The topic meant to say "Best DSLR for $1000"

    What do you guys think of the D50 or D70?

    Both systems (Canon or Nikon) are going to have their trade-offs. Go to a store and actually play with each to see how you like the menu setups and how it feels in your hands. That's the only way to figure it out.

    what he said.

    this question comes up waaaayyyy too often and the only one worth reading is this one. go to a camera shop, play with all of the models you are considering, hold them, shoot with them, feel where all the settings are, everything. It is what made me consider the D70 over the 300d.

    and its what made me consider the 300d over the D70...obviously nothing wrong with the nikon, I was just used to the canon system and it felt right in my hands
