Ive never used a DSLR, so im looking for something to get me into photography. Im looking for a camera which will do standard indoor/outdoor, sports, and all the other standard stuff.

Will the 300d be enough to start off on, or should i spend more and get the 350d, or should i spend more again and get the 20d.

I know the specs, and why each camera is priced the way they are, i just want to know if i REALLY need to buy the more expensive cameras. To put it into perpective for the americans here,

the 300d = $1200
350d = $1800
20d = $2400

all with lens kit.

thanks.

Considering prices 350D is most silly choice here IMHO. If budget allows go for 20D - will never regret. If like to save go to 300D - a bargain. If you feel that photography would be your major hobby 20D is better choice; if for occasional point and shoot with decent quality pix 300D is more then enough.Call is yours.

I have the 300D and love it although I paid a lot more than you will. I would not bother with upgrading to the 350D, the 20D is a worthwhile buy if you want to start off with a serious DSLR.

also you can get some great bargains for your 300D on Aussie Ebay, Ive been buying up on Ebay in the last six months, you will find good quality lenses, filters, bags etc on there.
