Lightbulb New and looking to get my first D-SLR

Hey everyone, my name is Joel, i'm from Toronto, Canada.

Looking for some advice on D-SLR's. I have been doing some research lately as I have won a few photography competitions at school, and really enjoy taking pictures, so am looking to take the next step up from a P&S in the near future.
I have been looking at these 3 cameras:
Canon Digital Rebel XTi (leaning towards this one)
Nikon D40x
Sony Alpha A100


Any others recommended for beginners that are not 2 expensive.

Also, with lenses, Will the basic kit lens be enough? or would it be worth maybe looking on ebay to see if there are any deals on lenses with the camera?

Thanks Very Much, Joel

Re: New and looking to get my first D-SLR

Hi there Joel - welcome to Pixalo. All three cameras you have on your list will give you great pictures. Best thing is to handle them all and see how easy it is to select and change shutter speed, ISO, apature etc. Also the general feel and if the controls are aesy to access will be important. You will find one camera will be easier for you and that is the one to get.

Cameras are available with a kit lens or as body only and you can select you own lens. A good general purpose lens will cover from 18 at the wide end to between 55 and 70 at the longe4r end. There are lenses available that cover 18-200, and a lot of people think this is the ideal do anything lens, however thes will be more expensive than the others, so you will have to make a choice here.
