For those who may be considering a purchase of an entry-level SLR, I thought I'd post some of the sites I found helpful in my recent purchase. I'm a novice photographer who recently upgraded from a point & shoot digital camera to an entry-level SLR. Ultimately, I narrowed my choices down to the Nikon series (D50 & D70) as well as the Canon Digital Rebel XT. In the end, I decided there was no 'clear-cut' right answer, but that all 3 cameras had their respective merits. Ultimately, it became a decision of what type of pictures/prints you are going to shoot, how much post-processing you like to do, as well as your individual comfort with each camera. I hope these links help other people - I know I struggled with the decision for some time. http://www.dpreview.com/ http://www.dcresource.com/ http://www.steves-digicams.com/ http://www.digitalreview.ca/ I hope I haven't wasted anyone's time; good luck with your purchase!
