Today I picked up a Canon Rebel T1i with a 1.8 50mm lens. I’ve been wanting to buy a nice SLR for a while, but the D90 and other models are a bit out of my price range. Aloha Fixed recommended this exact setup and I have no idea who runs the AF Twitter, but thanks for the recommendation!
After toying with it a little, I have to say that I’m pretty impressed with the photo quality. For under a grand, you can get a camera body, a few lenses and a warranty package from B&H.
Really good depth of field, simple to use and lightweight. Now I can finally catch up on product reviews!
