I finally went ahead and bought the Canon Digital Rebel 350D. I'm glad I waited since, with the new model introduction, I got one a kit for $580 on eBay including a 1 year warranty. I'll let you know about it when I get it!

:2cents:

I think it will cost you twice this price to meet your expectations (maybe?!). The kit-lens are far away from beeing quoted as good from a semi-professional or ambitious-armateur point of view. Thats why i choose olympus E-1, the optics and a extremely good (but relative expensive), they are worth the price. I'm photographing with it for more than 2 years now. Sure you get serious canon lens, for really serious prices :2cents:
My other favorite would be Nikon, but thats really not my priceclass.

So, i don't know, if you have already DSLR experience. If yes, what is your favorite day(night-)time for photography. If not I would share some of my experience...

So have fun with the new SLR!

Well, I opted for the Canon since my mom already has several Canon accessories that I can use for the camera... thus saving me money in the end. :(

I've personally been holding off for the 10.1 megapixel Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi. It is priced about the same as the Digital Rebel XT was. I kinda wanted to touch it before I buy, so I am waiting for my local electronics stores to get them in (just so I can just see the menus, functions, and such). After that, I will probably buy one online.

You probably can't find a Digital Rebel XTi (body+lens) for under $900 at the moment, so the 350D is definitely tempting at 2/3 the cost of the 400D.

Now I have myself thinking again.... should I get the Rebel XT and save a bit of money, or go with the XTi.... tough decision.

Dang. I'm in the same boat. I'm kind of hesitant to pay the "Be the first" premium on the XTi though. Might wait a few months, but then something else will probably catch my eye... This is going to be my first dSLR.

I didn't think the XTi had that many great new things to offer. The dust thing is cool but sounds like something easy to mess up, and the 2 megapixel difference isn't a big deal for me. It certainly wasn't like the bump between the 300D and the 350D.

One thing I didn't realize is that there are a lot of tutorials specifically for the XT out there. That's a plus for me.

I got it this week and haven't played with it much since I'm learning about digital in general, but I've been quite happy so far.

I think it's the 10MP & the 2.5" screen that is pulling me to it. I was looking @ some of the first TXI kits popping up on e-bay & the XT definitely has a better features/price ratio. Half the price almost.
