At that price, I would wait another year, save up some more money and start looking then.

That was my budget last year when I was looking at DSLRs. I bought a Canon Rebel XS / 1000D. I then invested another $700 in telephoto lenses.

The short answer is yes, that camera body is more than enough for Anet. The longer answer is that I wouldn't buy a camera just to get shots on here.

As people will tell you, though, and as I'm still in the process of finding out, lenses will generally make a bigger difference in quality than camera.

Or start looking now at used bodies with an entry-level kit lens. I guarantee you could put together a kit that would get photos accepted here for $400 or less, if you do some shopping around, and know what you're looking for. Case in point, I just sold one of my older camera bodies (four years old) for $350. Around 300 of my images here were taken with it, so just don't have your heart set on the latest and greatest, and you'll be able to make your budget go far.

A used Nikon D80 and the 18-135mm Zoom-Nikkor F3.5-5.6G ED lens will do the job for close range photos in normal conditions. Such a combination should be really cheap. Just look out for one that has been well looked after.

But of course, what distances will you take your photos at? Quality longer range lenses typically cost more money.
