A rebel upgrade ?

Hey y'all. Right now I have an original Rebel who is on her last legs after decades of use. I do primarily wildlife photography, specifically with birds, and I'm looking to upgrade what I take into the field with me.

My dream cameras are the R6 or 90D , but with the budget I have right now it's a pipe dream. I'd like to spend under $700 on the body, $400-$500 if I need to buy a new lens as well.

I have what I believe is the original Rebel lens (EFS 18-55mm) as well as an EF 75-300mm.

Anyone have a lower budget camera that they love for wildlife photography? Or any lenses that would go along with an inexpensive camera that would be a step up from my two decade old baby?

For as long as your existing camera still has a heartbeat, then I recommend that you keep saving up money for the camera body that you really want.  It will be less costly over the long run, as well as far more satisfying.

TembaBavuma,

I bought a T8i last year, and I like it very much. The body was $749. You'd still be able to use the lenses that you have.
