Hi! I'm new here and am needing a new camera, I was hoping ya'll could let me know if I'm heading in the right direction. Sorry if I've posted tooo much information, just figured more was better than less. I currently have a Canon powershot A95. It's still working ok but I am wanting to upgrade. My budget is around $500ish. I need something great for kids photos (fast shutter speed) and something that I can use to take pictures of very small items (I collect Japanese re-ment). I'm leaning toward getting a Canon XS and buying a macro lens (? don't know much about lens yet but from what I've read this seems to fit the bill) at a later time. Are there other options I should look at? What's a good resource for reading about lens? I plan on buying from my local camera store next time they have a sale. Thanks in advance!
