I currently have a minolta xg-m from 1981, always ending up scanning negatives in and working on them digitally. Film costs add up and hey, there are "some" cameras and lenses out there can blow it out of the water. So im entering the DSLR market... money is, somewhat of an issue. Right away i decided the D70S, then figured out the differences from that and the D50, and decided that the D50 would be a better choice because of the lesser cost> features in my opinion(yours?). Then i bring the rebel xt into the picture, it has 2 more MP, different storage capacity, smaller, lighter ("cheaper" built).. but anyways you all know that and a heck of a lot more. My question i need ALOT of help on is as follows.. D50,D70s or Rebel XT? ( I'll end up buying the standard kits rather than the body and buying lenses seperately. ) D50- $545 D70S- $965 Rebel XT- $750 -Prices from leobarnet.com ...any recommendations/better places to buy whatever i finally decide to buy as well?
