Cheap dSLRs

Lori & Matt, I was hoping that you would speak more on the D90 and perhaps compare it to a few of the SLR Canon models. Specifically the D90 vs. Canon 450D (XSi) and the Canon 40D. These are good entry level SLR's for beginners. Hopefully you could shed some more light on which DSLR (under $1000) is the best bang for your buck! Is it worth investing over $1000 for the camera body? Or going for a cheaper body and investing in a couple nice lenses? Love the show! Your Canadian listener, John C.


Groovy UV

Hey, Lori & Matt I just got my 1st DSLR, the Nikon D60 with an AF-S 18-55mm non VR lens, and was wondering if you could give me any newbie advice. Also, is it worth getting a UV lens filter; what purpose does it serve? Thanks, Jacob, Australia
