If you do not need video as much, or big on video, save the money on the t2i and get the t1i instead. If video is important t2i is the best in the entry level segment with HD video, but the t1i is not that far behind.

If you do not care for HD at all, and want a high burst rate the canon 50D, 6.3 fps. beats the nikon d90, and the t1i and t2i hands down for action shooting.

Warren - if you're really concerned about AF then you'll definitely want to bypass the xs (if you could even still find it). The XSi was a big step forward in AF performance. The T1i and T2i are pretty much the same AF system - just a bit more power and better sensors than the XSi.

Warren-

You are about to make a substantial investment in a new DSLR camera. Go with at least the Canon T-1i, otherwise you will always be playing "catch-up."
