im leaning towards the a350 and 450d just beause they both have LIVEVIEW function but then since its gonna be my first SLR im thinking that i should maybe go for a cheap one then upgrade in a few years... oh yeah i like the screen that pops out and rotates up and down on the a350!
if you know about them please advise me
