this christmas i'm getting my first camera; and i've been leaning towards the canon eos rebel 2000. has anybody used this camera? it's price is not too expensive, and it seems to be held in high regards by those who have used it. i'm pretty new and fresh to photography, and i'm still learning a lot, but i'm working on it. basically i know i want a camera with a lot of creative versatility, definitely manual as well as automatic. it appears this camera has those things. this camera also comes with a 28mm-80mm zoom lense. i have heard that zoom lenses don't produce images as sharply as a non-zoom lense. is this true? i haven't really looked at too many other cameras, i don't know where to start. comments on my current choice would be appreciated, as well as any other recommendations you may have for me. as for what i want to take pictures of, if that's still important, i just want to take pictures of whatever strikes me. i tend to like nature/animals, people, places; especially the urban atmosphere.
