Hi again gymak90,
Actually I made some errors in my consideration.
1) No flash for me. Not yet at least. I've heard much about the wonders of a good flash user's pictures. But my main consideration for a dSLR was the lens speed for low light condition, in which almost all of them, I am not allowed to use flash. Stage works or even classes, its just plain distracting, a little rude. And if I could use flash, my prosumer would do satisfactory stuff for me, my taste for IQ isn't that extreme yet.
2) I totally forgot to consider IS. Will i get IS with the Canon lens and body?
Yes again I do want the high ISO low noise capability. Seems like I'm back to deciding on a 450D again. Anyway I don't plan to buy it THAT soon. Not at least until next March, so maybe the price will dip a little for me by then. I'm hoping at least.
I just went down to Best to play around with their display sets, and oh my gosh, I feel like a noob. I figured wheres the zoom, but where on earth is the aperture and focus ring? I was trying to twist and turn things everywhere to no avail. Bleagh. Anyone know a website for dummy dSLR users?
