    Sorry Britchick...I'm going to the other side and getting the Nikon instead. :D

    Thanks for all the help guys!
    same advice on lenses though whichever make you go for, the bargain lens is always the 50mm f1.8, the 85mm 1.8 better for portraits but you have to get a bit further back to get the frame (it provides a better more flattering portrait effect though)

    Oh my goodness, I was able to find the 55-200mm lens with vibration reduction in a kit for basically $120!!! I am going to return the camera kit I ordered from Amazon, as it only came with the normal...I found another kit for $549 for the camera, the normal lens and the 55-200mm lens. :D What a deal!

    Thanks guys! It was too good to pass up. While I love Amazon, they didn't have this kind of deal. That lens is normally $230 or more and I will have paid the 120.

    Not *everyone* gets it Brit, most of us think that it's a manufacturing tolerances problem. In other words, the lenses get made to a certain standard allowing the contacts to be this far out but no further, the bodies get made the same way and most of the time that's ok but sometimes you get a body and a lens which are on the outside of the tolerances and the combination is flaky.

    The build quality has definitely decreased over the years though.
