I don't own this particular model (yes) but when I was researching a higher end camera this one popped up quiet a bit and everyone I spoke to who owns one is very happy.

I just got back from Best Buy. The T1 is discontinued. They were out of the T2 and the T3 is a little more then I was wanting to pay.

I may look around and see if I can find a T2 somewhere.

If you don't plan on using it for video, the Nikon D3100 is a great entry-level DSLR for photography.

Aside from having better kit glass than the Canon counterparts, Nikon tends to be more a little more user-friendly. At its current price point at B&H, you will be well under the $750 mark, and for a new DSLR, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better value.

Keep in mind that the nicest DSLR lenses cost at least $1000 themselves.

True statement, but a great alternative is just renting the high-end glass for special occasions. I'm a huge fan of borrowlenses.com, and I would recommend them to anyone that has a DSLR. It's a great way to get the use of pro glass when you need it (or just trying out different lenses) without tying up the capital.

Unfortunately, no. If I was, I'd use Digital Labrador and save the shipping cost.

What are you going to be shooting mainly? How much is video important to you? Shooting mostly automatic, I reckon? By this example, you would like some good zoom action it seems...

I don't care that much about video. I looking at something not too big, 20x zoom, multiple fps. Can you give me some pointers on what other things that may be important like White balance, shutter speed, memory formats, flash range?
