Starting out with a kitlens is fine, as it gives you a chance to explore what type of photography you want to do.
But in the end it's a shame to buy a good camera and put mediocre glass on it.
As for camera's, there's plenty of good ones. If you want a canon, try to find a 550D, it's cheap and still as good as their newest entry DSLR's.
