Thanks for the plug, Nova!

Yea, there's always the kit that I have for sale. Good price considering everything that one's getting (of course, that's a very biased opinion, since I'm selling it), however it has everything that most people will need.

A kit lens with some wide angle and some zoom, a longer telephoto lens for those days you just NEED to see what your neighbor is cooking for dinner, a fish-eye lens that is a hell of a lot of fun to play with, and a 50mm prime 1.4 lens which is great for nice depth of field shots! Ta dahhh :D Plus, free shipping to Calgary (From Saskatoon actually)

I am also looking for a beginner Digital SLR :) neat to see some of the things these camera can do that my point and shoot can not.

Great starter package. You don't have to risk a whole lot of money to get you feet wet in the DSLR market. Camera is also compatabile with all Canon lenses.

Nikon D60 (http://www.nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Product/Digital-SLR/25438/D60.html) around $620 at Bestbuy. Have had one for about 5mths, and 5700+ shots later...still love it for its small size and simplicity.
