Hi I want to buy a dSLR, specifically a Canon Digital Rebel XT/350d. They are giving a bundle offer over which looks very interesting. For about $710, I get the camera, the kit lens and a Sigma 70-300mm lens also. So I want to buy this camera. Problem is: my dad. He doesnt want to listen to me at home about why a dSLR is better and why I need one. When he goes to the store, he starts asking me questions in which I need to answer with jargon. He doesnt believe me when I speak jargon. Also the SOB of a salesman starts butting in like a pig. They dont know ****. Yesterday, the idiot was like if you are a pro then you need this camera(350d) if you are not then you need this camera(some P/S camera). I felt like asking him do I NEED it you dumbass? Who are you to tell me what I need. Its not necessary that a pro uses a dSLR. Now first of all do you think that the bundle offer is a good considering that this will be my first dSLR, and second digital camera, the first one being a very crappy Kodak. I know all the controls and stuff so thats not aproblem. Now for the main question, can you tell me some talking points to convince my dad in the store without jargon, logical and very 'convincing'. As I told you he starts asking salespeople. He thinks that I am blabbering when I speak (cuz I end up using jargon). Tell me somethign to shut the crap of the dumb salesman without my dad thinking that I am being rude with them lol. Also tell me something to tell the salesman like: Bring me just ONE P/S camera which performs better than this(350d). I really need help cuz my dad thinks that the 350d is only for pros and I dont NEED it, and I can get the job done with a normal P/S.
