I'm torn. I'm getting ready to throw down a LOT of money for one camera or another, and I want some secondary feedback to see if there's anything I'm not factoring in. I either want a Canon Rebel XS, or a Sony Alpha a-300. I don't know which. I tried both of them out, and they seem very similar with the shutter button, control wheel, and everything in the same place. Image quality seemed very similar as well. The image stabilization is in the body of the Sony and in the lens of the Canon, so I don't know which is better. Anyway, I'm not sure which route to go. I'd like to see if any of you could offer any other input.
