stay away from the Kit lens. i find them to be trash. lol mainlywhat you want is a 50mm. the ones with no moveable parts on the inside are always the sharpest. then if you wanting to do wildlife photography, go with a telephoto. and again with a macro lens.

I love my Canon Rebel from 2010. The picture quality is fantastic, and I haven't bought any lenses other than what comes with it. More pictures from a recent Grand Prix I went to are here:

Wow great pictures! I really have no clue now:( In the end it will probably come down to price.
I'm looking for a camera that videos too, that's why I was looking at the canon 500D(not sure what its called in the US) as none of the older versions video. Another thing that's drawing me towards the Nikon is its continuous auto-focus during videoing..
