I guess you had the 1st release (2003) and not the 2nd one (2005) of the Rebel... :?

I have both. The DREBEL was great but the 20D is a definite improvement, and I'm not talking about pixels. I was alwayswaiting for the DREBEL to catchup. 5 quick shots and then wait, after that it was 1 shot and wait and wait!!! That was my biggest gripe. It also didn't havea PCsynch port for studio flash. Still, it was great as the really first affordable DSLR. I'm glad I bought it. I still use it as my knockaround camera.

Congratulations - NOW REMEMBER -

1) Yes your images are not as sharp and saturated as you are used to with P&S's
2) There is nothing wrong with your camera - it's you !
3) Yes L lenses are worth every penny
4) Kit lenses are OK but not the best
5) The grip is not "Pro quality" but does a good job if you keep it tight
6) Buy lenses as you need them not because someone else likes them
7) SanDisk cards are pretty much in the top of the list
8) Shoot at least every other day (more if possible)
9) Ask lots of 'stupid' questions - pretty soon you will be answering some yourself.
10) Yes you will need an external flash - and soon.

Hav Fun !

Only thing I can add to Setiprime's list is after a while you may find you need a sherpa to move all your stuff for you.

This camera stuff weighs a lot when the collection starts to grow, and you always want to bring everthing along just in case :blah:

Also when buying *stuff* buy top quality, so you won't end up having to buy again when the bargain dosen't work out as expected.

Peter.
