    Hey I'm buying a new SLR from B&H and I'm stuck between these two:

    XSi
    $709 w/ 55 - 250mm IS lens.

    40D
    $619 USED; w/ zoom wide angle telephoto EF 28 - 90 mm lens for $99


    So the prices are basically the same, but with different lenses. After this purchase I'm not planning to buy lenses for a while so I want to know which package is better. My only concern is that I'm a junior in high school and I want to pursue photography seriously at least through college, so I want this camera to last.

    well the xsi package with that lens is a bit limiting depending on what your going to be shooting, and depending how how USED the 40d is, its a pretty stout and sturdy camera so i wouldnt be too concerned with operation. camera and lens wise the 40D sounds the best to me. but if you want something shininy and new get the xsi with a different lens
