    Hello everyone,



    My dad wants to buy a Canon Rebel XTI 10.1 Megapixel camera and I was wondering if anyone could give me their opinion about this camera. I looked on ebay and on newegg.com for this thing and newegg.com seemed to give me the lower price but I was wondering if there are any other places where I could buy it at a cheaper price?

    Now, onto the camera and accessories. My dad wants to buy a lens and a flash for the camera. Would it be a good idea to buy this camera right here (only the body)?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16830120073

    How's that for price and value?

    And what are some great flash lenses and flashes for this thing? Like best value for buck?

    I appreciate anyone's help :wink:


    Sorry if I violated any rules here. I am sort of in a rush right now so I was not able to read any faqs.

    Welcome to the forum.

    That is definitely a great camera, no worries there. That seems to be the going price, not an outstanding deal though. I would suggest looking at B&H or Adorama for this type of purchase. (there should be links at the top of the page, it helps the forum if you use them when you buy).

    Anyway, for a flash I suggest the Canon 430EX.

    For a lens, what's the budget? If the budget is tight, then I suggest the regular kit lens...EF-S 18-55 and maybe a 50mm F1.8.

    If you have more to spend, then I suggest foregoing the kit lens and getting a Tamron 17-50 F2.8 or a Sigma 18-50 F2.8.

    If the budget is big, then have a look at the Canon EF-S 17-55 F2.8 IS.

    Some other good lenses would be the Canon EF-S 10-22mm and some version of the 70-200mm.
