Well that is part of my problem. I can't decide on what I want, which is why I have been slow on buying one. I don't really know what features I want. I am also hesitant on buying a digital SLR because I am worried that as soon as I buy one and better model will come out with a lower price point. That shit always happens to me. When I bought my Cannon EOS Rebel (35mm) in April of 2002, the digital model came out a month after I bought mine and it was cheaper than the model I purchased.

I want a nice camera to take with my to Europe in the Fall.

I know what you mean. The XTi came out around during the Fall of '06. So that means it has been around for a few years but it's still definitely a viable choice for someone who wants to start out in Digital Photography. I personally know of VERY good photographers who still use a XTi (with a very good lens). The XSi just came out and is very impressive. However I know myself enough to realize that I will not use it to it's capacity to warrant the $800 (body only) price tag.

Sorry Lies for hijacking your thread

It's $589 on amazon. I think they come out with new rebels every year or so, and the xsi has been out almost a year.
