It is all about the lens!!! Invest in a good lens!!!
I dream of a Canon DSLR. I have a really nice film EOS 650 canon and love it, but really who wants to use film anymore! I use my little digital Canon and try to do fake photos by editing them! I have been a photo editor for about 14 yrs or longer now. My love in life is turning back to shooting the pictures now that I have a beautiful little grand daughter, who loves her nana to take her pictures and she is only 6 months old! She cracks me up!
You will love either camera I promise! hehe IF you don't, you can just give it to me! haha YOu are a lucky girl getting either of them! I can't wait until I am shopping for one!
It was a hard pick since there are great things about both but I'm going to go with the canon 50D.
Canon is soooo much better with color IMHO! I just need to go tink around with it at Best Buy tomorrow to be sure I like the bigger body. I'm going to checkout the T1I but I really wanted the sturdier body so we'll see. I love camera shopping! I just got this lens for the canon since I know I'm going with the canon either way. http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Standard.../dp/B00009XVCZ
I hope you get your SLR soon! They are absolutely amazing!
