Cannon D-SLR

What are your recommendations for an entry level Cannon D-SLR I know I want at the very least a 10.1 MP but a 15.1 would be optimal, it would mainly be used for still photos. But I would also like something with a really good optical zoom (to start with) and something with full frame so I can get the old film sized photos. So does anyone have any recommendations?

PS: I have always bought Cannon after Nikon let me down BIG time in the past so I would like to stay away from any Nikon D-SLR's

Re: Cannon D-SLR

By definition Canon really only has one entry level DSLR at any given moment.  Right now it's the XSi.  The older XTi might still be available and is slightly cheaper.  The default lens bundle with an entry level camera is an 18-55mm.

And if you want a full frame camera you are way beyond entry level already.

Re: Cannon D-SLR

Really? Oh shows you how much I know about the DSLR's I have always had a PnS and its starting to bug me not being able to take that great of a picture. Its nice sometimes but a lot of the time I want to have the quality and control that the DSLR has. Does the XSi use a SD card reader?

Re: Cannon D-SLR

The next level up from the XSi is how much roughly? Like 1000 or just a little bit more?

Re: Cannon D-SLR

If you want a full-frame sensor, the 5D mk II is your lowest option at around $2800 for the body.

Re: Cannon D-SLR

you wont find a full frame entry level DSLR.

the XSi is a great camera, but the next step up T1i would be my choice if i were to buy a new camera. i currently use an XTi, im sure you can pick up a used one up for a good price, its a great entry level camera.

I agree with this. Nothing wrong with an XTi at all.

Actually, a used 5D is going for about $1200 which is a steal. Great camera.
