Any woman who does not thoroughly enjoy tramping across the country on a clear, frosty morning with a good gun and a pair of dogs does not know how to enjoy life. ~ Annie Oakley
Do you listen to God as well as your dog listens to you? Can God run "Blinds" with you?
If anyone needs a 1DMkIII let me know I have one I don't use
I purchased a refurbed Canon 40D base a few years ago but spent my money on the 70-200 2.8 IS L series lens, I love it

I've got a Nikon DSLR. I had a coworker who had paid $350-400 for a Nikon point & shoot & was trying to compare it to her mom's Canon which was a DSLR; basically she was comparing apples & oranges. I have found for for wildlife & dogs I wouldn't trade my 80-200 zoom & definitely recommend a DSLR; it should give you years of service.

I would still recommend purchasing a used body. Depreciation is too high on the bodies. Like others have mentioned, spend your money on good glass and if you can find good used glass that's even better. You can spend the money you save from a used body and put it towards photo editing software.
