Hi all, I am wanting to upgrade to a SLR from my my current Canon K2. I know nothing about digital, except what I have read over the last couple of weeks. I am currently looking at Canon's XTi and XSi. I have a friend at work who has a XT and she told me that if I go with the XTi that I should get an IS lens but if I fork out a few extra $$$ for the XSi that I won't need an IS lens because the IS is built into the camera.
Should I go with a kit(if so which one) or get the body and lens seperate?
I will be using the camera for my children's sports, duck hunting trips, vacations, and just general picture taking. I really enjoy taking photo's, just up until now I didn't realize how horrible my current ability was. I would also like to be able to learn how to use the manual settings on the camera instead of using the defalt settings all the time. The defalt settings just seem too dull to me now that I have been checking stuff out on the net.
Sorry about this being so long winded. If I have forgoten any info that anyone needs to help me make a decision please let me know.
