Confusing myself about what to get
Nov 14, 2012

First I want to say, sorry for yet another, help me decide on a camera thread. For a while now I've been wanting to move up to a dSLR camera. I currently have a Canon SX20IS. As I keep researching the various models and packages that I could get, I think I'm confusing myself about what would be best/easiest for both my current desires, and also proper upgrades. I also keep wondering if ~1 month after I purchase something, something truly spectacular will come along and replace what I buy.

My main areas that I want to focus on at least for now, will be aircraft, landscapes, and hopefully I can get into astrophotography.

I think I've narrowed down my list to either the Canon 60D, or Nikon D7000, each has their pluses or minuses. Right now the current packages that I'm looking at are on ebay(http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Canon-60D-EOS-Body-7-Lens-Extreme-Kit-24GB-More-/150536382699?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item230caae8eb, http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Nikon-D7000-Digital-Camera-18-55mm-70-300mm-8GB-Accessories-Bundle-/170859759812?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item27c80908c4), and also the Best Buy Black Friday D7000 deal (https://blackfriday.bestbuy.com/cameras+amp+camcorders/product/1230707_9463582_4957218_123/nikon+d7000+dslr+camera+55300mm+vr+lens+free+32gb+memory+card++free+camera+bag)(mainly to help support brick and mortar stores).

I'm open to other suggestions, and tweaking of where to buy items, as I'm also probably a little obsessed with the best value for how much I'm going to spend(want to get the best deal possible).
