Nikon D7000 offers an HD video capability along with autofocus. New tech at a reasonable price.

NIkon D3100 w/ 18-55mm kit lens. This kit offers a low cost limited function entry level dSLR that anyone can pickup and use without question.
bump my own post all of these kits can be had for less than 1800 from reputable dealers

You can get the D3100 and stock lens for $550 on amazon. Just leaving my input.

If you were to price match at bestbuy, they'd also take another 150 off of that 75-300 lens.

Does your budget include a lens/lenses? I didn't see that clarified, but I may have missed it (too many beers before dinner).

Trust me, both the D3100 and T2i have more than enough functions for a beginner.
I would do the same (I have actually, T2i has served me great so far).

Also, doesn't radiation cause pixels to fall out over time? I'm not sure how much they can take, but the sample I saw was from a robot driving through the base of a nuclear plant (not the Japan one) and it started losing pixels into thin air after maybe 15 minutes. Could just be that it was a crappy camera (which it was). But I definitely wouldn't take a 1800,- dollar camera if I were you

If you don't plan to do too much HD video, I'd say pick up a D90 body used (or refurbed), a tele zoom like the Nikkor 70-300 VR, and then either a prime like the Nikkor 35 f/1.8 or a wide zoom like the Tokina 12-24 f/4. If you can swing it, then you might also consider the Nikkor 16-85 VR. Much sharper than the 18-105 VR, and you get a better VR mechanism and a metal mount.

was about to say....wheres teh canon love?

dont bother buying a canon rebel or nikon d3100. since you have the budget buy at least a canon 50d/60d or nikon d90/d7000. the d7000 with a tamron 17-50/2.8 would be my choice at that budget.
