I was going to go for the XT, it has got really good reviews over at Dpreview and CNEt , be sure to read all the reviews you can find. Eventually I went for the Sony DSC-R1 (very long story, I can tell you why I did if you want).

I have a rebel XT and I love it, but I've never had a SLR before so I have nothing to compare it to, so I can't tell if you should get one. I think the biggest complaint I've seen written about it is that the menu is hard to navigate. But I bought mine a year ago shortly after it came out so there may be more information out there now. If you do decide to buy, I got a great deal by signing up for dealmac.com alerts that sent me emails when a good deal would be out on it. I think it took almost a year before I found it for less, or equal, to the price I paid for it. I am sure you could use it no matter what camera you decide to buy.

I've got a 350D rebel XT and I can say I absolutely love this camera, I've had for about a year and it always behaves itself. It is very good for an amateur like myself.

The R1 is a prosumer point and shoot camera. It's not a DSLR. The viewfinder is LCD, not optical. There are pros and cons of each design. The R1 being incredible value for money. The Rebel XT being more flexible, with lightning fast reaction and smoother less grainy image quality at higher ISO.

Sony agrees with this, and has recently announced it's own DSLR (actually from technology they aquired from their purchase of Konica-Minolta's camera division). This will be called the Alpha 100. There will even be Zeiss lenses for it. A very attractive competitor.

Not sure if you're in the market for a DSLR. If so, I'd skip over the Rebel XT and go for the new 30D. The Rebel XT's ergonomics are terrible by DSLR standards.

Most of what The Maven said is why I chose it, for me, the pros weighed out much more than the cons. I love it's sleek design, its straightforward design where its really fast and easy to change settings with only a few presses (I love the dedicated ISO button near shutter release) and of course its Sony
I didn't want a DSLR, the headache of buying lenses and all that is too much for me, it's also a bit more maintainance and lenses are bloody expensive. The lens which is on the R1 is absolutely fantastic and is worth the price of the entire camera, also you get additional accessories from Sony which is equivalent to what you would bguy for a DSLR wbut you will save lots of money as it just adds on to the exisiting lens. For me the R1 is perfect, and well I seem to be the only fellow who chose it over an XT. It's your choice ultimately, and honestly if you have had experience with a DSLR before, you might be dissapointed from the R1, but if you are moving up from a point and shoot, you will love it because it is so easy for you and its alot of fun to shoot with. Its also got LivePreview wihich the XT does not have, which lets you preview your shot before you take it.

Glad to hear you are liking the R-1. I really am contemplating buying the R-1 as a second camera / backup, quick camera for my bag when I need to grab it and start banging away. I think your post is about to push me over the edge. Tell me a little more !

I had a 300D for a year and it was wonderful as a first DSLR - but I have just bought a used 10D for less than the price of a 350D - it is much better made, in fact the 300 feels like a toy now I have got into playing with the 10 for a couple of weeks..... So I would contemplate looking on ebay for a used 10D or 20D rather than buying a new 350D I think....
