the canon fast prime (100 2.0) is ~$400. that is why we ruled in the canon's. i...

the 50-150 2.8 sigma could be another choice here. a bit of a compromise in focal length and size between the 100 2.0 and the 70-200 2.8s.

i have heard only good things about the optical quality...

3200 is pretty much the ceiling for any aps-c.

noise difference between the canon 15mp sensors and the sony 12mp sensors is negligible.

for the record if it weren't for the indoor sports stuff, i think the e620 would be an exceptionally great dslr.

I know the Oly E30 with SWD lenses are some of the faster and better focusing combinations out there. But it uses a little better AF system than the E-620. Also, the high ISO capabilities of the...

to be perfectly honest, getting action shots with a walkaround 18-200 is a crapshoot. sure, you will get lucky now and again. but more often than not, the stars will not align. they do not have the...

to throw in more confusion. i guess you could pop a sigma 18-50 2.8 or a tamron 17-50 2.8 on a Sony A500 with its built in image stab. it wouldn't be long enough for sports but you would have a...

for a 1000$, i would be temped to get body+kit, an external flash, and one of the thrift-fifty (50 1.8s). regardless of brand.

then save up for more specialized lens (aka 70-200 2.8, etc)

regardless of a few more pixels, the resolving power is not different. per pixel sharpness is better on the xsi, the t1i has more pixels, so its a wash in their shared range.
