My Cannon EOS Rebel xTi was stolen out of my car and I need a camera asap before I go away to Americorps. I have always had DSLRs, but I don't know why I should buy one now. I won't be doing any fine art so I don't need to manually focus much and I won't have money for new lenses any time soon. BUT I need HIGH QUALITY. Really high quality. I take photos for modeling portfolios and have a little gallery. I spend an absurd amount of time taking pictures and am accustomed to professional quality. I also need a great auto focus system, naturally. My budget is somewhere in the 5-6 hundred dollar range, but if I could spend significantly less that would be great Or I could always scrounge up a little more.
