Canon EOS Rebel XTi (400D)

Review Date: Feb 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $600.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Conventional and reliable design, good build, very good IQ, built-in flash is decent for fill-flashing, love the 2.5" LCD, dust cleaning thing (not sure if it actually works but it's sweet anyways!), 9 focus points...this camera is great
Cons:
Buttons are a little too small (smaller than XT), wish it had a scroll wheel+joystick instead of a button pad...

Great "little" dSLR. Honestly, it's a good investment to start out with and you might not even need to change camera's. Has all the bells and whistles, good ISO noise control, highly recommended!!

Review Date: Feb 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fairly sharp (center), light, good solid build, very good IS, convenient Focal length, very queit and focuses very fast
Cons:
Should have included the lens hood, no case, vignetting wide open at 17mm, some CA but fixeable

Great lens for the price. Although I bought it used with a hood included, it would really suck to pay $30 for a peice of petal shaped plastic...Altogether the lens is great, it's a good walkaround. At super-wide angle, i don't suggest you take pictures of close objects (up to 4meters) as it will turn their slender faces into an inflated balloon. Too bad the f/4 turns to f/5.6 at around 30-50mm. Still sharp though. For the price, I'd say try it out at a store and see for yourself.

Review Date: Feb 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $550.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: VERY VERY SHARP, light, non-rotating barrel (good for CPL's), fairly cheap price, nice bokeh
Cons:
White, Long

Amazing lens, I'll never let it go. Add a teleconvertor on it and it could work as a medium telephoto for birds. I love the sharpness and the OOF with the 8-blades. Even though it's only F/4, it performs exceptionally well!
