Hi all,

Am new to this site and hoping someone will be able to give me a little more advice. I'm looking to purchase a digital slr for my daughter who is studying fashion promotion at Uni. A photographer friend of a friend recommended the Canon 5D but unfortunately it's slightly out of my budget!! Have been looking at the 550D and 500D but I am really clueless to be honest and would appreciate some further advice on which one is best. Also what lens should I be looking at?

Many Thanks in advance
