    My mother-in-law wants to buy a dslr for him for xmas. She asked me what is out there, spending around 900 for a body and lens what would you guys suggest. He likes both canon and Nikon, I was kinda thinking the XSi, but the D90 seems good too, but a little higher than she was looking. Anything current would be appreciated.

    If it matters, I have a D90 and so far I love everything about it! It is my First DSLR so I havent really experimented with what's out there. I Paid $1299 with the Kit Lens, So you should be able to get a body for ~$1000 I assume.

    Oh Yeah, The Video feature was a HUGE plus for me!

    Well, you could get an XS which is pretty much a new XTi... With the lens your looking at 599.00 US. Or a D60 with the 2 lens kit at Costco the other day was 649.00.

    You could try looking at used also, that will bring the price down a bit.
