Well, recently I have been getting more and more interested into photography. (This is my first post in the photography section of this forum). And looking to upgrade from my canon point-and-shoot. I am looking for a dslr that will be good for a beginning at (semi-)serious photography. I narrowed my options to two the: Canon Rebel XS and the Nikon D3000. I am leaning towards the Nikon because the bigger screen but Canon does have live view and video. And I do prefer the feel of the d3000. Any recommendations? Also which company, Nikon or Canon has a better selection, and quality, of beginner lenses for somebody like myself. Also Thanks.
