    The gf has had her film SLR shit the bed, so she got the loot back from it and now has to suck it up and go digi. Looking around, there are some nice and expensive deals. But we are looking at the 400 dollar and up range. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Aight.

    for $400, you're looking at maybe a d30 as your only real choice. For $100 more or so she could pick up a used 300d w/ kit lens if she looked around for a while.

    thats it for digi SLR's. A new Nikon D70 is gonna be 800-1000, a new 300D is about 800, with a $100 rebate that can be tripled to 300 if you buy certain lenses or flashes etc.

    A new 20D is 1500, a older 10D if you can find it would be about 1100.

    Otherwise you're looking at a used D30 or D60.
