I have been doing some research on a new DSLR and trying not to make tons of posts here asking questions that have been asked tons of times before. But now that I have narrowed it down to what I think is what I am going to get I will run it through you guys to make sure it is a good idea. I am 18 and going to take a photography class next semester and want to get into it. I heard that you should get the body based on a lens you want. I like Macro photography so I found out that the best Macro lens for the price is the Canon 100mm. I went to Sammy's cameras and looked at the XTi and the 40D. The XTi felt better in my hands and I don't think I need to spend twice as much on the 40D for my first DSLR. I don't think I will ever use the kit lens that comes with it. So my main question is would it be ok if I just got the XTi body, a Canon 100mm Macro lens and a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens with accessories. I am thinking that if I have a Macro lens and the 75-300mm one I will not need the kit lens. Am I right?
