Hello, sorry for another, what should I get thread. Anyway, I am trying to decide between a used Canon D30 body or a new Rebel XSi. A little background on stuff that I shoot. I like to take action pics skiing, friends jumping off cliffs, powder shots, etc, as well as take shots out at the racetrack. I also go camping and hiking quite a bit in the desert and mountains. So... I think that I need a DSLR and a couple lenses. I have been using a Canon S5is, and it has been fun, and was a great step up from the little silver SD550 I have, but I am feeling limited now and want more. I can't swing anything new that is more than the XSi and still have some money left over for a couple lenses. I have begun to believe that the XSi body is capable of much more than the lens included in the kit, so I am steering away from the kit. I like the 12MP of the XSi but don't know if the MP is as important as other features in the 30D. I like the 30D for the higher Burst rate over the XSi, and that is relatively important to me for taking action shots. My fundamental question is, would I be better served by the higher speed and potential of the 30d, even though it is 8MP instead of 12? Also, I haven't been able to figure out if the 30d has internal image stabilization. If it does, that makes many more lenses good options over the XSi which needs lenses with the IS integrated, therefore, more expensive. Locally, there is good price on a 30D that looks pretty nice. Either option, I need a couple lenses, preferably a decent wide angle that will work for landscape shots, tooling around, etc... and a larger zoom lens for shooting skiing, racing, and the dog. There seems to be tons available. I think ideally I would want one ballpark 70-200mm with a fixed max aperture, but those may be out of price range. Any tips or advice as to which route I should go? Thanks in advance!
