Canon EOS Rebel XTi (400D)

Review Date: Feb 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $600.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Conventional and reliable design, good build, very good IQ, built-in flash is decent for fill-flashing, love the 2.5" LCD, dust cleaning thing (not sure if it actually works but it's sweet anyways!), 9 focus points...this camera is great
Buttons are a little too small (smaller than XT), wish it had a scroll wheel+joystick instead of a button pad...

Great "little" dSLR. Honestly, it's a good investment to start out with and you might not even need to change camera's. Has all the bells and whistles, good ISO noise control, highly recommended!!

Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Feb 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Fairly sharp (center), light, good solid build, very good IS, convenient Focal length, very queit and focuses very fast
Should have included the lens hood, no case, vignetting wide open at 17mm, some CA but fixeable

Great lens for the price. Although I bought it used with a hood included, it would really suck to pay $30 for a peice of petal shaped plastic...Altogether the lens is great, it's a good walkaround. At super-wide angle, i don't suggest you take pictures of close objects (up to 4meters) as it will turn their slender faces into an inflated balloon. Too bad the f/4 turns to f/5.6 at around 30-50mm. Still sharp though. For the price, I'd say try it out at a store and see for yourself.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Feb 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $550.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: VERY VERY SHARP, light, non-rotating barrel (good for CPL's), fairly cheap price, nice bokeh

Amazing lens, I'll never let it go. Add a teleconvertor on it and it could work as a medium telephoto for birds. I love the sharpness and the OOF with the 8-blades. Even though it's only F/4, it performs exceptionally well!
