I have owned a Kodak DX6490 with a 10X for a couple of years now and absolutely love the camera. I do have trouble taking sports photos in a gymnasium because of lighting conditions and would also love to be able to take closer shots of football games. I am considering upgrading to a Canon Rebel XT but the more I research the more confused I get. It appears that the zoom telephoto lens that go with the Rebel (i.e. 55-200) will not zoom in any farther than my 10X camera. Is that the case? Will the Rebel also help with the low light pictures or should I just stick with what I have?

the advantage of the XT is you can get diffeerent lenses the 55-200mm will give you a 320mm lens with the XT's 1.6 crop factor. if you get the 70-300mm IS lens you will get an equivilent of a 480mm lens. The main advantage of an SLR is that you can have different lenses for different situations.
