    Yes, read the forum please (including sticky threads, Newbie guides and forum FAQ & rules).

    Read the stickies and newbies guide. Do a search for similar threads, you'll get many results. Also, THINK FOR YOURSELF. do not expect to be spoonfed or given a lecture in class where you're told what camera to buy. Go out, try all the available models from all manufacturers and get the one that feels best in your hand, that you can configure and change the settings on intuitively.

    But, here's a quick tip for you: ANY DSLR (whether made by Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax or Olympus) will suit your needs. All you need is a good wide lens (the kit lenses, which are 18mm at widest, are usually good enough for landscape) as well as a macro lens. All of these can be found for all systems.

    hi,
    the cam body will get outdated in 1-2 years. there are more pixel-packed and feature packed bodies coming out now and then..
    better lens give better pics generally..
    there are plenty of affordable and very-good Canon lenses for your future selection..
    just my 2 cents..

    There are alot of affordable and very good nikon/sony/pentax/four third lenses as well.

    To TS - most of the major camera brands have great lens selection, you will not go wrong with either. Just go down to the camera and have a feel of the system you are looking at.
