Default Re: Any advice for my first camera?

Buy a good lens . . . the camera is not that important.
Both Canon and Nikon are good . . . easy to get and to service.
Canon is said to be a bit better in the high ISO (good if you shoot a lot inside without flash), Nikon is supposed to be more user friendly . . .
I bought the sigma 18-200 . . . it's better than the standard Canon lens . . . the stabalized one is rather expensive . . . I've used both and for me there is no difference.
I now have a Canon 1000D . . . as good as you can get to get started . . . in a few years there will be better cams . . . if I have to I can change.
good luck and enjoy your year!!
