There was a lot of good feedback on this (thanks for all the
contributions). I should note that I'm mostly buying for my wife's use,
as I won't have time to get into photography anytime soon. She and I
went to Allen's here in Orem and used some cameras there, and we went
with a Canon T3i with a 18-135 lens. It comes with a basic lens hood,
has a lot of the features she'll likely get into in our family events
and had a good price.
I'm tempted to get into it myself, but I have to focus on more technical
learnings for the moment.
Thanks again for all the info. She's pouring through a lot of it today,
