Yes friends,I m very happy :-)because I just purchased my Rebel today.Now I m at work and charging the battery.When I go home I'll take my first photos with the Rebel.with this Rebel I have got 3 canon. First is EOS 300V,the second is S45 and finally The Rebel (300D herein Turkey)

I confused between nikon d70 and 300D.I could not decide for a long time.But at last I stopped this confusion and purchased the Rebel. I hope I wiil be pleased for this choice.

I hope your as happy as I am with my Rebel. It can produce bad habits, ie buying more stuff to go with it. Good luck.

I hope that you enjoy your Rebel as much as I have mine! Have had it since September. They are a Great addition to your other equipment. Be sure & let us see some images from your country. I suggest 2 things when you can get them.

at least 2 - 512MB CF cards & a spare battery. FYI - The lifespan of the battery is very, very good!

Railfire, be sure I will show some photos of my country,especially ─░stanbul.

We just try to know and learn each other with my rebel for the time being

The first thing that I noticed is;too much barrel distortion with this 18-55 lens especially at 18 mm. be sure,such a wide angle makes barrel distortion but for a first time I use an 18 mm it seemed a bit much to my eyes.Which is the lens that make lesser barrel distortion for the rebel?Of course not being too much expensive

I have a CF card 256 mb and it takes about 75 pictures(Large sup.fine).I think I must buy an 512 mb more.

The battery is very good.I shot about 300-400 experiment photos and it is still alive.

My firstimpressions are these thingsfor the present.

and a bad thing more; picture transfer to pc is very very slow :?one picture takes 20 second to transfer.But my s45 is sending a picture only in 6-8 second (between 1.8or 2 mb a pic)with the same cf card.

that means 75pictures in a 256 mb cf card take 25 minutes totally. :evil::?

Civil-

Many of us have learned that a "Card Reader" is the easiest way to go. They are fairly inexpensive ($20-$30USD) or even less. You do not have to concern your self with plugging and unplugging your camera all of the time. Most of the units will handle all of the different types of cards.

If you are not shooting to many "landscape" type photos, I would suggest you look at the Canon 28/135 with IS. It is a very well rated lens and many people consider it their favorite.

Good Shooting - Jon F.
