    I am finally thinking of getting a DSLR and have had Canon cameras in the part (currently have a S70). Right now there is a $100 rebate on the Rebel which is leaning me in that direction. The D50 and D70 do feel better in my hands though. I know they are all excellent cameras, but what would be the best bet for the long term?

    What kind of shooter are you? Do you shoot at night often? D50 does not have backlit top LCD so keep that in mind. I own a D50 and so far that has been a minor inconvinience but other than that I like the camera just fine. XT produces real nice pictures, I can't distinguish it from 20D pictures. But I just can't get past the UI and grip of it.

    if you want a cheap good DSLR.. get the 350D if you have extra cash to spend.. get a used 20D.. and if you are thinking about getting a new 20D.. spend the extra dough and get a new 30D.. the 2.5" LCD is worth it. I've had the canon 300D, 20D, and now 30D. I love the 30D.

    The best bet would be to see which lenses from N/C you like better.
