I'v got a Canon Powershot S1 IS and have been more than happy with it. 10X Optical zoom coupled with a 32X Digital zoom and 3.2 Mega-pixels.

I went ahead and also bought a larger memory chip(512 MB) so that I can take a lot of pictures. My suggestion would be to get rechargeable batteries as you'll go through quite a few.

What are you going to use it for? are you going to get it with the standard kit lens? You will want another lens so you should be thinking about that when you buy your camera. The XT is a good camera but only as good as the lens you put in front of it.

I don't think you can get a better digital SLR for less than $1,000. That being said, you need to match it with lens of at least equal quality.

MarshMaster-

how do you like the pic quality of the canon? i am thinking of getting the S! but cant make up my mind. its in the price range of what i can spend right now. i looked at the minolta z3 and z5 but the sample pics ive seen seem to have a good bit of noise..

thanks-
med

This package I am looking at has Sigma brand lenses for the extra lenses. Does anyone see that as a problem. The cannon brand lenses would be about $200-300 more. The guy I talked to said he did not believe it was worth the extra money.
