Standard Prime (35 1.8), Macro lens (3rd party or maybe 60 2.8/85 3.5). I don't see the need for a tele yet since you have the superzoom. I wouldn't bother with a new body yet.

Old school path (manual focus and manual exposure): Samyang 14mm 2.8, Samyang 85mm 1.4 and Samyang 500 f/8. The cheapest way to get a UWA fast prime, fast portrait and super tele

Go for it

Right now, I'm trying to find a nice, cheap Canon body for my girlfriend. Any chance someone can help me out? I'm most likely going to give her my old Sigma lenses so I only need the body.

It's funny in a bit of a twisted way... I got out of one expensive hobby (computers) into a much more expensive hobby (photography). Granted though, photography is pretty awesome and while I'm not the best at it, I definitely enjoy every minute of it!

Glad to see I'm not alone Many of my friends don't understand why I went from an i7 w/ dual GPU setup to a C2Q w/ single GTX 260, but I think photography is worth it. Especially at a college that I believe overemphasizes science (this coming from a pre-med bio major, mind you ), I honestly think artistic expression is much more important than computers. That and, at the end of the day, I think it's extremely more satisfying to be able to publish a great photograph you made yourself than it is to post benchmarks and system specs

Haha, I did the same. I have several new lenses that stopped me from getting an i7+5970, but I'd say worth it

Nice I put my i7/9800GT money to my new EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM and EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk II, and I absolutely do not regret it.

Funny part is that OCN was the site that actually got me into photography.

You can find the Rebel XT , XTi, and the 20D for fairly cheap from Adorama and Keh, especially if you don't mind buying the Japanese "kiss" version .

A bit of subtle hinting in the gift itself... I like the way you think!

In all seriousness, I forgot about the Japanese Kiss version. I'll definitely take a look, thanks!

Yep, I haven't updated my rig in over two years because of photography (almost $6000 or so invested so far ), but fortunately, my rig can handle even new games ok, just can't go to far with AA/AF. Actually, I did upgrade to Win 7, but that isn't hardware, plus I got it for free (legally).

What's your budget? There are plenty of used Rebels out there (original, XT, XTi, XS, etc.).
