I have noticed that this thread has sort of languished for several days. Let me share with you what I have been up to for the last few days.

I have been researching the KM 5Dand the 7D. With the $200 rebate on the 7D through the end of the year, these two dSLR cameras are within $100-$125 of each other. Considering their extensive exterior controls that relieves you from having to go into the menu all the time to make small changes, and their outstanding photo output and capability, the Canon 350D/XT pales in comparison.

And I own and use a Canon 350D/XT so I know by way of experience. It is just my personal opinion, but I believe that the KM 5D and 7D far exceed the Canon XT in terms of features and capability.

Especially take a look at both Steve's and dpreview's review on the 7D and 5D. The 7D got a "highly recommended" rating from www.dpreview.com and not many digital cameras get that rating.
