I've FINALLY decided on a Canon Rebel XTi. Thank you to all who helped with advice. Big Mike and others are absolutely right, that, after research, economics, and soul-searching, you've got to get the darned thing in your hands and see how it feels. HOWEVER, now I'm driving myself nuts with lenses. If at all possible, I'd like to stick to one, basic walk-around lens for financial reasons and "L" lenses are out of the question right now. I mostly shoot nature and travel (people as well as plants). I've been considering Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4 II usm and the 28-135 or maybe 24-80? Or even the kit 18-55? HELP! There IS such a thing as too much information, and I'm at that point. Advice?
