    just out of curiosity, why the canon preference?

    not trying to start a canon vs nikon vs sony vs pentax vs olympus vs kodak vs polaroid vs hassel vs leica vs casio war...just wondering since youre coming from a P&S what made you want to go canon. do you or someone you know have some lenses available? that would be awesome if that were the case...get a head start on glass. :thumbup:

    I think they mean "I prefer Canons".

    Cannons is a weapon.

    Canon makes good cameras. Nikon makes a little bit better cameras right now.

    SLR Digital Cameras Here are the current new (not used) Canon cameras in your price range

    Gotta love the Internet. I went to B & H Photo Video's web site, clicked on Cameras > Digital cameras > SLR's > Canon > $500 to $999 and it made the list I posted.

    Is that price for just the body or body+lens? Check out the t1i or 450d if you don't want to buy used. 40d is a great camera if you don't want brand new. Not a canon guy so I'm not really sure about much else. GL!

    I thinkit might just be his starter camera, for example, i started with canon, im not going to suddenly go out and buy a d3000, it wouldnt suit me especially since im used to Canon, idk, just preference.

    jw, why do you need a new camera?

    double edit: just whore yourself for a couple nights and buy a mark III :)

    why Canon? Nikon is great too ;)

    In your range your looking at:

    Nikon D90 (used)
    Nikon D5000
    Nikon D80 (used, obviously)

    Canon 450D
    Canon T1i
    Canon 40D (used)

    As said before, are you looking for a lens+body or body only? Give us some more information so we can help you out.

    Out of all of those I would go D90 (ignoring that you want a canon:lol:) it has the best image quality out of all of them.

    Here are your new canon options:

    Canon XSI Kit

    Canon T1i kit w/18-135

    Canon T1i w/18-55

    I say If you really love canon go 40D USED.

    But why Canon? Why not Nikon? Have you held a Nikon in real life?
