I really like my cousin's Canon 60D. I was thinking about buying one myself. My budget is $900 for the body, but not sure if that's the "best" SLR camera I can get with that budget. I was also looking at the Rebel T5i, but read that many preferred the 60D over it. I will be using my camera for mostly taking photos of people and things not too far out in the distance. However, I do want to be able to take some good landscape photos as well. I don't really care about brand. Could you guys recommend me to some cameras, or is the 60D my best bet for some good photos? Much appreciated!

If you had $900 for JUST body, I would go with either a used 7d or Nikon d7000. Both are excellent.

I think the Canon 7D goes for 1200$.

My vote is for the Nikon D7000, its in your price range and better then the 60D in low light.

Thanks for the suggestions. I know those are great cameras. After thinking about it for a bit $900 is on the steep side for just the body. So, let's say $900 including lens. I know those two cameras suggested are big upgrades compared to the 60D, but I really like the 60D for what it's got to offered for the price. The price also went down a good bit.

I think it comes down to either the 60D or one of the ones from the Rebel series for me. I think the 60D is more bang for the bucks and does everything pretty similar to the the cameras from Rebel series. What do you guys think?

I think for the price you are looking for this will be the best camera, get it (if you can) with the 18-105mm kit lens.
The 18-55mm is also a good lens but naturally covers less range.

Good luck.
