Few weeks ago I bought a Nikon D70, and last Tuesday, taking the opportunity of a travel to Panama, I bought the Rebel XT [D350].
Great camera the D70, but at this time, I want to hear from some of you about your experiences from the D350, that I don't use yet [I'm less than an amateur in this field, and I'm in the process of trying to learn how to use it].

"Is it somehow cheaper in Panama that it would be in the US? How much did it cost you if you don't mind me asking?"[previous reply]
Of course you can ask!
I think it's cheaper [at least than Miami or Florida].
I bought mine at Panafoto. Another advantage it's than you can [I don't know the correct word in English] "deal" the price. My D350 cost me [brand new] $899,oo, plus an additional lens 75/300 III something [ultrasonic, but not the IS] $200,00. They gave for free a 128 Compact Flash Card [Lexar] and I bought another one of 1G for $85,oo. The sales tax is 5%.

Start with a 75-300mm f4.5-5.6 III USM. Consumer's lens but after time it will give you a feeling for how to use your camera. After a few months upgrade. With your set up you should do fine. Though I hear a 50mm 1.8 is a nice add on for less than $100. And the word would be "negotiate."
