I hope that I am not another person asking this question... but I am torn. I may have the extra money to get the 30d. But I think the only thing I worry about is the weight. My neck does not like even the 300d haning off it. I do a lot of photography and may be traveling a lot in the future. I am also hopeing to do some studio at home for the fun of it and for my friends. So... based on all the info... what would you all say??? In some ways I want to get the XTi so that I can get a better lens. I really am not pleased with what I have now and I am afraid of kit lenses. HELP!!
