The best feature of the Canon XTi/400D is the very much improved auto focus system. That is a huge improvement over the XT model. All in all the XTi IMO is an excellent camera and it is very capable. Congratulations, I think you will really like the camera. Here is a XTi photo taken handheld without flash at ISO 800 using the Canon 28-135mm IS lens.

Congradulations and good luck with the EOS 400D.

And as to questioning whether you should have spent another 120 euros and gotten the D80, don't worry about it. You like how the Canon feels, and that's the most important thing.

And trust me, if you had spent the additional 120 euros and gotten the D80, then you would be wondering if you might have been better off if you'd spent another 100 euros and gotten a D200 or a 30D. Don't drive yourself nuts.

And post some photos.

But I am not profesional, I am one amateur learning to use DSLR camera by my own, hope that quality will improve when I know for what is each features/botton and can use camera fully manual as recomended by everybody.

Anyhow thaks a lot for your help this days, was very ussefull and instructive.

Chausinho-

Thanks for posting some excellent photos from the new Canon XTi. The flowerslook great. I live on the Oregon Coast and we often have fog, today is one of those foggy days.

Also have decided to ger one new lens,... PRIME EF 50mm 1.8 as cheaper one (abt 100 EURO) and good one for low light photos (aquarios, night shots....etc),... Hope to get it this week.



Once again thanks for your help
