Wrong! The Rebel XT has a stainless steel inner chassis frame with a polycarbonate outer shell.
Correct - just chassis, i.e. thin metal plate. While *istDS has stainless steel frame. But point accepted - there is metal inside 350D :-)What I was trying to say that 350D lighter not only because of battery. But now Iget curious - what would be comparison without batteries? Mind, that *istDS not only has stainless steel frame, but also pentaprizm, and glass is not light either :-)
