My wife and I are going on a trip to Cabo San Lucas in about 3 weeks. She and I both like photography and both of us have "point and click" 3 or so megapixel Canons. I have about $700 to spend on the camera and a beginner len. I have seen some pretty sweet deals on ebay for combos but its all Greek to me. I guess what I am really looking for is to be pointed in the direction on some newbie guides and some recommendations on good value cameras.
