    20D
    More comfortable to hold
    Higher FPS
    Slightly larger viewfinder
    Extra dial makes adjustments easier

    I own both and the 350D is stuffed away in the corner.

    20d...though I do agree with viper to a degree, the XT is just too small for me and the 20d just feels better.

    Yea I have a 30d with no lenses. Well the 70-200 but there's only soo much you can do with that lens. :hs:

    if you get a 350D couldn't you afford another lens for what you would have spent on the 20D?

    if you're only getting one camera with a kit lens and nothing else for now regardless of which one you get.. well the 20D is the better camera.

    You would be much better off with the 350d + a good walk around lens. Forget the kit lens all together. Depending on the lens it might be the same as a 20d+kit lens, or slightly more. It will however be much more flexable and have much better image quality.

    20D has a thumbwheel which allows you to make aperture/shutter speed adjustments much faster in manual mode. I personally couldn't deal without having it.
