    So my friend has a canon rebel XT with the standard lens that comes with it. Mint condition, still has the plastic on the screen.

    One is it a good camera? I'm coming from a nikon coolpix 4300. so anything would be an upgrade. He said he would give it to me for $425.

    Any advice?

    Damn, $425 w/ the lens is awesome... I just got myself a 300D for almost that, just starting out in DSLR so next month or so i'll probably get myself a XTi, but the XT for $425 w/ lens is nice...

    Shoots awesome as well, you would def enjoy it...

    There are samples all over the net but alot of them are not using the kit lens 18-55... So results may vary =) Trust, the XT is a big stepup from that P&S cam.

    its ok, nothing great, but it'll work. try it first, see what you like and don't like, what limits you etc. theres hundreds of lenses that will work, but it just depends on what you shoot
