I'm looking to get a nice digital camera in the next several months and was wanting a little help in deciding what to get. I enjoy photography, and would like to take a photography course and really get into it. I don't know of any one particular object I'd shoot more than another (i.e. more sports over landscapes shots). I currently have a 35 mm Canon Rebel I bought about 10 years ago and have enjoyed it. I've got the standard lens (35-80 mm?) as well as a 75-300 mm zoom...both are autofocus but that's all I can tell you about them. Since I already have those lens, I'm leaning towards the canon. However, I plan on using the camera for a while and don't want to buy an inferior product just because I already have lenses that work with it. I know there are cameras made by Canon & Nikon that cost well into the thousands, and I'm not looking for those. I'm not a pro by any means and can't justify spending that much. I'm looking for something a little simpler...like right around $1000...hopefully less. Thanks!
