FYI - the quality goes in when the lens goes on ! Quality lens + cheap DSLR > cheap lens + expensive DSLR ! Bottom line is , buy quality lenses once and upgrade to whatever camera du jour fits on them - you will get better images than updating DSLR camera bodies and software ( still using the same crappy kit lense from your original purchase ? ) in your pursuit of the ultimate image - camera companies gonna get yur $ one way or another ! GLASS kicks ASS !!!
