planing to buy my first digital slr, needs some help.

I want to able to take wide range of picture(people to still life, out door....)

I have narrow down to a few cameras.

Canon Digtial Rebel XT
Nikon D100 or D70 or D50
Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D.

I know Minolta is pulling out from camera.
I like Maxxum 7D but I need some more pros option.

I want to get my feet wet to world of Pro digital world, possible go real pro.

My first 35mm was in my college days(13 years ago); Canon AE-1.

I had been researching for a few months now.

Thanks in advance.

Because dSLR bodies seem to change all the time and depreciate rapidly. And because I have more than several dSLR's already, I am going to submit to you a possible agenda. When possible I tried to purchase factory refurbished dSLR bodies. I recently purchased my second refurbished body several days ago. It was a Nikon Refurbished D-50 body that works perfectly for a cost of $(US) 399.

My strategy is to buy refurbished bodies, because they change/depreciate so rapidly, and to make my big investment in the lenses, which can be used on any future dSLR body. I purchase excellent lenses as theytend tokeep their resale value a good deal better than camera bodies.

So, with Nikon D-50 refurbished bodies so inexpensive, at least here in the USA, that might be a worthwhile starting point for you.
