I am getting a DSLR for my wife as a gift. We don't know anything about photography. These are some candidates that I am considering. The first price is for camera with a single 15-55mm lens, the second price is for a bundle that includes a second 55-200mm lens. Sony A230 - $435/570 Nikon D3000 - $475/740 Canon XS - $500/740 Olympus E-520 - $540/660 Olympus E-620 - $600/735 Canon T1i - $700/835 At these price points, which one of the above cameras are the best value? I want to get a good deal, but I do want to get one so cheap that she will outgrow in a few months or even a year. Some headroom is crucial. Buying the 55-200mm in a bundle will probably save me some money, is buying this lens with a starter camera a good idea? Do people often get 55-200mm as a second lens?
