I'm planning to buy a DSLR for the first time (I used to shoot a fair amount on film SLRs, also have a decent - but old - compact zoom that I'll still be using for stuff my initial lenses on the DSLR won't reach). I intend to use it for mostly for - portrait photography with ambient lighting, flourescent lighting or candlelight. - my kids playing around or just looking cute - "general photography" - whatever looks good as I'm walking or driving around (including landscapes) In the future, when I could afford extra lenses, a good wide lens for landscapes is going to be next on the list. Some kind of macro capability would be nice too, but as my compact will focus down to 1 cm and produce decent images, it can wait. It should definitely be capable of being remotely triggered (in the future). Other than what I need for the above, my priorities (in order) are 1) Image Quality - should be professional level 2) Budget 3) Durability OK, given all that, I'm looking at getting one of these bodies Canon EOS 1000D (= Digital Rebel XS) - new Canon EOS 350D (= Digital Rebel XT) - (from eBay or wherever) Canon EOS 20D - (from eBay or wherever) (I've read in several places about this generation of Canon's superior high-ISO capabilities, which is why I've so far not really considered other brands). Onto that body, I would put one of these lenses, either new or second-hand depending on what I could find: Canon 50 mm / 1.4 or Sigma 50 mm / 1.4 Any comments or alternative suggestions?
