Its my first post here, but I've been going through lots of threads since I joined the fast few days. There are lots of helpful info/people on this site and I'm lovin it. I'm interested in street photography (i.e. urban life, people, and buildings), could you guys recommend a DSLR and lens for this type of photography? I'm guessing that any brand of dslr should be OK and it should be more about lens, but I am just wondering if some dslr are better than others for street photography. After looking/researching different models, I think i'm narrowing my search down to Nikon D40-D80, and Canon XSI. I would like to spend around $1000 (would be better if it was not more than $1000 ). Should I include the kit lens with my purchase or get the body + other lens? Any help/comments?
