Re: help me buy a good slr camera

Shoot, I agree that the extra controls on a semi-pro body are ´╗┐nicer´╗┐, that is part of the reason I chose the 50D instead of the latest Rebel.  And, for an eager beaver enrolled in some high intensity program at Brooks, or where ever, those controls might make a difference too.

But my guess is that most of the noobs posting here simply want nicer photos for their family.  They will be on a DIY path that is a lot more casual than Brooks.  And the internal controls will not impede their learning.

In any event, this deficit of controls on entry level cameras applies equally to the entry level Nikons, as to the Canon 550D.  Which your post did not make clear, sounded like the 550D was somehow more crippled.
