I’m about to buy my first SLR camera and lens, would the Canon EOS (30) Elan7E camera & Canon EF 75-300 f/4.0-5.6 IS USM lens be ok? Went thru some post and figured the setup. I want to keep the cost under $1,000 USD. I would appreciate your comments about the setup and changes you would make. Need suggestions from the dealers you buy from over the Internet also.

I bought a Canon EOS 30 for some months ago.
It's like Gerardo said a superb camera with a lot of functions. I use a 28-90 mm USM together with a 75-300 mm IS USM, the last mention lens is just great, you can't fail with the photography...extreme sharpness!

Thanks for the comments in this topic and other post. I wanted to go cheaper on this, but after reading past post I figured this combination out. You are right about the scanner; mine is four years old and needs replacing. Someone else has started a new topic on the scanner question, and I'm waiting for answers there and checking past post.
