Hi there, quick question: I purchased the casio ex-p600 and it isn't what I wanted (felt fragile, pictures weren't great, and lcd was fairly washed out). Either way, I have a nice pocket cam (coolpix 3700) so I wanted a "big boy" to really get into Digital Photography. Obviously I have heard a ton about the digital rebel and nikon d70. The D70 is pretty much out of my price range (>$800) but a used Rebel looks pretty good (lens kit version off ebay for roughly $750).
Basically, is there any reason to wait? Is there a rebel II right around the corner (that will drive the price down of the original rebel)? Is there another dslr coming out in that price range? Any other advice? I'm not really in any rush but of course I want my new toy/project as soon as I could. =)
