Well, you can either adjust the pictures in something like Photoshop, or you can let the camera automatically increase sharpness, contrast, etc. You need to switch you parameter in the camera's menu. Set it to a custom one (I think parameter 3) and adjust the sharpness/contrast/sat to your liking.

I've also heard the D50, on default, has a lot of post processing. The 350's default (parameter 1) has only some post processing.

The kit lens (18-55 ef-s) on the Canon EOS 350D works just fine, especially in it's sweet spot of around f8-f11. I use this lens a lot, and the results are more than acceptable. Also Canon's in-camera settings are more conservative, so you can set up a custom parameter for this if you wish, but I prefer to do sharpening, etc. in post-processing.
