Ive currently got an Xt. Looking around the forums I feel kinda left out I was going to be buying a Tokina 10-17, external flash of sorts, 50 1.8, and a maybe the Canon 55-250IS tele. Adding it all up its about a grand. Realizing this, should I use the money to get a new body? Im really wanting one and this may very well be my only chance for awhile. Im thinking perhaps a used 30D or maybe higher. Then with the money left over and selling my XT get a new lense. I know its all about the glass, but this is quite the entry level body and a rare chance for me. I value all input, thanks guys. The main two cameras I want is either the 40D or a D80. although I dont know anything of Nikon lenses as of yet.
