    This will be my first DSLR, ive had previously a G1 and still have a S50.
    I just cant make the final decision yet to pick up another expensive hobby.

    Any thoughts? The only problem is really the money as i am a university student.

    If money is an issue, why not get the EF 28-135mm? It's the equivlent to the EF-S and almost half the price. I'm still a beginner but I like mine :)

    it must have image stabilization, ultra sonic motor and low low noise !!!
