well i used to have a rebel xti but i had to get rid of it. well now my parents said they would like to buy me a new camera for my birthday. I was looking at a Canon 40D. Would you recommend this camera to one that wants to have a bit more features than the xti? Also is there any Nikon that is like the Canon 40D? Also how is the lens that comes with the Canon 40D in the kit? It seems pretty solid to just begin with a 135 mm with around a 4-5 point focus range.
