    hey i have never bought a camera but the canon EOS rebel G caught my eye.

    I found a reasonable deal with a 28-80 zoom lens and shoulder strap for 40 dollars.

    thats what I wanted to spend for a body and I was planning to upgrade the lens and I will soon if i purchase.

    do you guys think that is a good camera?

    I'd say go for it. I have a couple of Canons from before the G, and after the G came out, and I really like them. If you want to find out the specs on the camera go to: http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/film/series_eos.html

    I have the A2, Elan II, EOS Rebel XS N Date (though mine has GII on it, and no date function), and the Elan 7E. I had a Rebel XS, but just recently sold it.

    I have always found the Canon cameras to be very user friendly from the early EOS's (630, et al) up to the newer models. If you can shoot a roll through it first, so much the better.

    Welcome aboard.

    That should be a good starting camera. The best part is that any lenses for it, will be compatible with any other EOS cameras, including Digital SLR models.

    The camera is from 2003 so its not very early i dont think?

    It seems like a good deal though im pretty sure im going for it.

    I like the idea of how any eos lens will fit on it. so in a while if im upgrading to a digital slr eos camera I can keep my lens.

    Thanks for all of your help.

    Yeah, any Canon 'EF' lens will fit and work on that camera, and any EOS for that matter.
