1. A Sony A390 for $500. The lady at the shop told me it was about the same as a Canon but at a better price because it's a lesser known brand w/ fewer famous sponsors and advertising. Also, that it might be considered better because it had additional stabilizing in the lens itself not just in the body.
2. Buy my bro's Canon Rebel XT. It's about 3 years old and I think I can get it for $400. Great advantage to share lenses and knowledge with two brilliant photographers who already have Canons and could help me.
3. Buy a new Canon. I think prices run from $500 to $1000. Same good reasons as above to buy a Canon.
I think I know what I want to do.....
