Re: DSLR for Female - Please Recommend!
Suggest you get the Canon 550D then and maybe a standard lens to replace that standard zoom. Remember the crop factor of 1.6 for Canon APS-C. What that means is Canon 50mm F1.4 lens will have the viewing angle of 80mm - a good portrait lens! You don't need large lenses to take good pictures - don't go for long zoom range because you'll end up playing with the zoom - and the lenses tend to be slow and big. I would suggest 3 lens combo for you (vary it depending on your shooting style/subject). a wide angle, a standard, and a short tele. (remember to multiply by 1.6 for canon aps-c sensor size dslr like the 550D.
