I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 and have been looking into getting a Digital SLR. After a little research, the Canon Rebel XT seems to be a good match for me. I am a relative beginner and many people seem to recommend this camera for newbies. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, and I love to take close up pictures of leaves/flowers/objects, and my cybershot just won't cut it for these shots. Just a couple of questions- Are there any other similarly priced D-SLRs I should also be looking at? I noticed that this camera came out it 2005, is there a potential update coming soon? A lot of reviews complain that the Rebel XT is too small and not very sturdy? Does anyone have any similar complaints about it? I don't know that much about the technicalities of digital photography, so first of all- is there a newbie guide someone could point me to? Where can I buy cheapish (sub $200) lenses that are better than the EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 Lens that comes bundled with the camera? Side note, but still related- has anyone ever used http://www.fotoconnection.com? The price for the Rebel XT is considerably lower than places like newegg, I'm not sure whether its a scam or what.
