am getting ready to make the move from my S1 IS (although I plan to keep it!) to a digital slr for the quicker / more accurate auto focus, better pic quality, lense flexibility, etc.

I cannot spring for a 20D - so I was really looking into the dig Rebel. I stumbled across the Olympus Evolt 300 - at 8mp, smaller innovative form factor and especially price, it seems like a real contender for the Rebel! I looked at both at Best Buy and the Oly even feels way more substantial. I understand that the Olympus does not have the multitude of lense choices with it's relatively new 4/3 format - but aside from the included kit lense - I probably will only want to get a 75-300 - that is readily available and reasonably priced.

I am awaiting the arrival of the Rebel 2 (March1???) to see the price point and features before I make up my mind...

Anyone have any comments or know anyone with the Evolt 300?

What Olympus has been saying for a while is their new SLR series has their own custom lens that were designed for digital. i think it was the Zukio lenses? anywho, they have about 4 lenes out at the moment (as to my knowledge).

but its gonna exciting to check out that new XT! wooooo! (yes, i just found out this morning!)
