    no pressure, but if you decide to jump straight into FX, and your photos turn out not to be decent, I'll you for wasting your sister's money...

    what brand and model are good?
    just a question what sort of photography do you wish to delve in as it would decide the camera lens system?

    take it you buy a full frame camera..
    For events, you are looking at maybe a 24-70 f2.8
    For sports, you are looking at maybe a 70-200 f2.8
    For portrait, you are looking at maybe a 85mm f1.4/50mm f1.2
    For macro, you are looking at maybe a 100mm f2.8

    My opinion is if you can, visit the canon and nikon showrooms to have a feel of the cameras first.

    However, I would advise you to start simple and learn about photography basics first. There's no shame in buying a simple setup and learning the ropes first. The entry-mid models usually have a lot more automated features, which help to get you going on the long road of discovery and learning. After that you can sell off the entry level stuff for a small loss, and move on to something more feature-rich.
    Fully agree on that.
    But it seems that TS is being pampered by sister, there goes all reasonable thinking

    well, especially if you get the D700, and you find it doesn't live up to your expectations (maybe a D3X will suit you better, who knows?), don't forget me...

    I'll be first in line for your discards...

    You sure more practice is all you need? Check out the dude in the following thread. After 1 year of practicing, now thinking to go back to PnS.

    Learn how to crawl, then walk, then fly. I do not recommend jumping directly into D700, if the only budget you have will get you the camera body and 1 lens only. FX lenses are very expensive. And you will need accessories, flash, tripod, remote. dry cab, etc etc etc... One of the main joys of a DSLR system is in its flexibility, i.e. changing lenses, attaching flashes, etc etc etc....

    Unless you are one of those "for show types", wear camera like wearing jewelry and go how-lian prancing around. Then I recommend you go for Leica instead, lighter and look even more "pro".

    agree with you...
    There's a certain amount of naivety being shown here... as though buying a "good" camera and lens will enable one to take great photos.

    I liken it to getting a Porsche 911 upon passing one's driving test. Who wouldn't want one? But which newbie driver can really make use of the Porsche's additional abilities...?
