You need to give a bit more detail then "I want the best body and the best lens".

Budget, preferred subjects/genres, previous experience with a camera, is this just a hobby or do you plan to do more, etc.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add all that. I am a beginner. And I am just looking for a camera to learn the ropes on. I would like to take some professionally, but that would half to be a little down the road.

Can you name what is wrong with your current camera? It looks like you could learn a significant amount from that one prior to investing several hundred dollars on a DSLR.

It just doesn't have what I am looking for. I have a cannon powershot, and I want to start taking photography classes, but I can't do it with my current camera.

"It just doesn't have what I'm looking for." You need to be more specific. Just because it's a compact doesn't mean you can't learn from it. There are plenty of people who take photo classes with such cameras and do fine. You will learn to manipulate the camera.

Where are you, and how much are you looking to spend?

I live in the US, and I really dont want to spend more than $1,000 because I am not real serious into photography yet.
