I kinda wish I had waited and gotten a 40D instead. I didn't really know a whole lot about ANYTHING when I got the XTi...my friend has one and I fell in love with it, and didnt really look into others. It really was all I could afford anyway...but now I wish I would have waited a few months, saved up some more cash, and gotten a more "pro" camera. Maybe I can just keep saving, and eventrually sell my XTi and get the 40D (or whatever may be out thats in that price range) Not that the XTi is a BAD camera...its really not...but after feeling and playing with others on a few different occasions now, I seem to dislike my XTi more and more....lol! *sigh* Ok, pitty party over.
