Hi there, I'am really confused as to which camera to start with. I currently have a point and shoot but saving for a DSLR, would be ready to buy one in the next few weeks Under $1500 is the current budget unfortunatelly. I can afford the 550D now, but just saw that 50D is being discontinued and heard its very similar to the 7D (ofcourse 7D being better). Do you thing it's worth me getting the 50D's while they are still around? And what is a good lens kit or lens to start with just for good all round photos. ( I take alot of portrait shots ) I'am not completely set on canon, but they are the only cameras I have been researching for the last few months. What is Nikon 90D like in comparison to the above I mentioned, say 50D? Did the 90D sell better then the Canon 50D and that is why they deleted it?
