Hi, I am wanting to buy my first DSLR and specifically want to take action shots of my 2 whippets, aswel as general pics. I have been considering the Canon 500d and Nikon D5000, as I'm attracted by the vari angle screen, not sure if I will use video, but I may after playing about with it! I am considering spending up to 1000 including lens accessories etc. Would I be better dropping some the bells and whistles for a faster camera, if so which one? and which lens would be best suited, typical bundles offer an 18-55mm but should I go for a better lens?
Thanks Kathy
