I am a long time Canon user (A1, ElanIIe, G3, SD450), and have 2 EF lenses (28-105, 100-300USM)- so now that I have decided to get a DSLR, I can't fathom switching.

Sooo- given a limited budget, I'm trying to decide what to get. In my budget range are the Rebel XTi and refurb'd 20D (and maybe I can stretch to a refurb'd 30D). The question is- how do I decide?

I like the more substantial body of the 20D/30D, although am less likely to appreciate while traveling. Focus/image acquisition performance is very critical- 2 young kids and 2 large dogs for subjects means lots of action shots. The dust sensor on the Rebel XTi seems like it might make a big difference in the long haul?

As far as special features- I typically shoot my SLR in P mode, although for certain shots I will shoot Av or Tv mode (the ones where I break out theBogenusually).

Thanks in advance!
