No need in me saying i am a newbie, my post count pretty much says that all on it's own. I have been flirting with the idea of buying a canon digital rebel since their conseption. Finally, 10 days ago, I made the purchase of a digital rebel TXi. I love this camera, but is a totally different world from the point and shoot, as well as the trusty (and crusty) camera cell phone..lol. The quality of the images even with the stock lens is just phenomenal to me.:hail: I will be doing a lot of reading now. Nice site!
