Canon EOS Rebel (300D)

300D-2
Review Date: Dec 28, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $899.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great image quality, great price. Good entry level DSLR - exactly what I was looking for
Cons:
Plastic body, a little too lightweight - I had to buy the BG-E1 to add a little more weight to it.

This is my first SLR - I know, I've been told a billion times that I should have learned to use a film camera first, but I wasn't about to start learing how to process and develop film. I already know how to use a computer and photoshop, so the DSLR was a perfect fit with me.

This camera has been great. Amazing images, works great with every lens I've bought, and the camera has proven to be very durable. To the beach and back a million times.

Great camera, especially for a starter.

Pros: Small, light and VERY sharp. Quick & silent focusing. Great lens.
Cons:
None yet

I own the Canon 70-200 f/4 and use that primarily for outdoor sports photography. I needed a faster lens for indoor/low-light sports photos and I didn't want to spend the $1200 for the 70-200 f/2.8 IS (if anyone has one they'd like to give to me, send me a message) so instead of forking out 12-hundo, I spent $300 and got a fast lens that works great indoors, and has turned out to be quite a nice portrait lens as well.

I love all of my Canon lenses.

Review Date: Dec 28, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $600.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp, quick auto-focus
Cons:
Doesn't fit in my small bag ;-)

Great lens, I use it primarily for outdoor sports photography. I wanted to get the 2.8 IS, but I couldn't justify spending twice as much on a lens that might not get as much use.
