    Hello, I am new. I am hoping to pick up a Canon Rebel XTi or XSi (12 megapixel) or the pricy 40D 10 megapixel. Which one would you recommend?
    I can't afford more than the 40D. I am not a professional photographer, but I want to be able to take beautiful portraits, landscapes, sunsets ( I travel around Asia a lot). I thought I read that the XSi uses a newer smaller lithium battery, is that a problem or an adv? Please offer your experiences ;)

    I think that if you are not pro that you should go with the Rebel. That camera will take great pics for you and I think will be a bit lighter to carry around on your travels. Have a blast!
