I am looking for a afordable high quality SLr. I am not lookin got do any fancy stuff just good old fashioned pphotography. i am not the type that will sta yout all night because there is a full moon and the lighting effects will be fantastic. I leave that up to the more talented, creative people ;-) I need soemthing to take landscape, portraits and especially pet photos with. Movement& zoom is important wide landscapes not as much. I am also debating wether I should go digital. I know long term they are more afordable but i am still a little hestitant. in my experience if you use old fashioed film you take fewer but better planned pictures. I usually end up with 30 good pics wether I have 36 on ngeatives or 100 on a CD. Any input would be wonderful!
