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!
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
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.
Thats an argument

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.

I've personally been holding off for the 10.1 megapixel Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi.
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.

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.
