    I'm looking up some digital SLR cameras online and I've found 2 good deals that i'm trying to decide between. I don't know much about SLR cameras but i've found a Olympus Evolt 330 for 585$ That includes 2 lenses and some other stuff. I've also found a Canon Digital Rebel XT for 460 with 1 included lens.

    Which is a better camera/deal? I'm under the impression that the Canon is a better camera, the additional lens is tempting for the Olympus.

    Id stay away from the Olympus just because of the 4/3 mount and the 2x crop factor that they have because of their stupidly small image sensors.

    Check out DPreview.

    "Similar results as we observed in the Olympus comparison above, the E-330 looks clean and almost as detailed as the EOS 350D up to ISO 400 but beyond that the blurring effect of the cameras noise reduction has a seriously detrimental effect on detail."
