So I think I'd like to actually spend my christmas bonus this year on myself / something fun for once. I've wanted an slr camera forever!
I have some experience with some of the SLR settings, as I took a photography class in college, but no experience with different lenses.
I currently use a nicer (old) sony but what do I buy for a DSLR that fits my budget (and it would be nice to have $ leftover). Canon Rebel? Other suggestions? Must-have lenses?
