I'm looking to purchase a digital SLR. Mostly for taking pictures of the kids, 3 and 6 at the moment. I'm moving up from a Kodak DC4800 and in doing research I think I've decided I need to go DSLR. Unfortunately in doing research I've come to learn that i'ts not an easy decision.

Most of my pictures will be indoors, backyard, or sporting. As they get older, I think we'll have some nature as well.

Since I'm at a loss, I kind of decided on the 350XT although I'm waiting on reviews for it. What are your opinions on a package like this:

Also, what do you think of the Sigma 18-125 lense (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=7501676856) as a walk about lense. Perhaps combined with a 50mm 1.8 for now. Buying a longer zoom in the future when I need it?

Thanks, Jon

With the new $200 rebate on the 7D, it's pretty attractive as well. Any opinions on 7D vs. the 350? Does the 7D move me up to comparing to the 20D. I had ruled it out due to price before, but it looks like the body can be had from around $1150 after rebate. Which puts it back on my radar. Of course, finding a wide enough lens seems to be an issue for it.
