alfik-

To realistically provide the help you are asking for we will need to know a bit about the kind of photos you are taking, you budget, youe experience and your photoexpectations.

While I own both the Canon 350D/XT and the Olympus E-300. Ergonomically Ipersonally much prefer the E-300 to the Canon XT because of the very pinched grip and poor viewfinder on the Canon XT.

I you do a lot of shooting in low light level environments then the Canon XT is better.

If you like to use a slave flash to increase your flash range to 50 or 60 feet, allowing you to take great digital photos with the 40-150mm lens found in the 2 lens kit.

The Olympus E-300 in the two lens kit is a real "best buy." It will given you two very easily carried lenses that fill just aboutevery photographic need from 28mm to 300mm in 35mm terms.

Stay away from Olympus as they forget you after the purchase.

I noticed that you just joined our forums today. I also see that so far, you've made 4 posts in different threads, all warning users to stay away from Olympus (without giving any details why, other than "they forget you after the purchase").

What's the problem that you have with Olympus?

Believe me, I see posters angry at all of the camera manufacturers for one reason or another from time to time. None of them are perfect.

Alfik,

Maybe you can answer your own question.

Why did you narrow your choice down to those two cameras?

It really depends on the style of your shooting. Either camera, the Olympus E-300 or the Canon 350D/XT will serve you well.

Go out to www.pbase.com and do a camera search, and pick out the two cameras, and look at the photos submitted on that site.

You will see the Rebel XT under Canon and the Evolt-300 under OLYMPUS.

Study the pictures, note the lenses they are using, and see which results match the style of results you want to get.
