Here's the situation, and sorry if I'm long winded, but my head is spinning with options right now. I'm new. I got hooked when I started using a d90, 35mm prime lens. I loved the stuff I was able to do with it. I've got access (potentially) to some kick ass Canon glass, and this guy, a professional, only uses Canon, so that's what he recommends. I'm interested (for now) in shooting low light candids (bars, parties, bedrooms) and nighttime urban stuff. Natural light, I've got about 1k to throw around for now, but would like to spend as little as possible (not swimming in dough atm). The xsi seemed like a good fit, as the price is right ($630) with kit lens. Add in the cheap 50mm f/1.8 or the 28mm f/2.8 or 35mm f/2.0 and I'm off and rolling in that 1k ballpark. Problem is, the xsi doesn't feel nearly as good in the hand as the D90. The grip on the xsi is somewhat uncomfortable. I'm a guy and my hand size is right in the average range, but it just felt cramped and the pinch is so narrow and deep. I'm just not sure if that's a deal breaker, the comfort / build issue. Plus, if I decide down the road to purchase nice glass, I want a body capable of exploiting that upgrade. The most important thing for me, even more than comfort, is image quality. My question to you all: What's the best set up for me. Should I get something like a refurb 40d? Anyone out there with the xsi that can chime in on the comfort issue? Is the xsi ok for the stuff I'm trying to do? Is the kit lens worth the 90 bucks? Or should I just put that toward the prime lens. Which prime lens should I get? Or, given the kind of stuff I've listed that I'm interested in, would you recommend a different set up entirely. Thanks in advance.
