10-22mm test on Rebel XT. Camera was set to 12mm, 1/500th shutter. This is a great lens for aerial. Attached shot, a 8x10 crop, is a test shot that is actually a portrait shot (camera turned sideways so long side is vertical). I had accidently set ISO at 400, so not sure if it was ideal. The resolution is so good on this, compared to my 4mp point and shoot, that in the original photo, you can see the tennis ball that is being served in the lower right. Thanks for all the advice on the camera and lens.

Flap,

What was the cost of the 10-22mm lense?? I was surprised at the list price here in Canada...over $1400

Are there less expensive alternatives for the Canon Dslr's??

Have handled the XT...other than no video out it is looking ideal for AP work. I think it has no competition at the moment and the kit lense should suffice for now..

Jetman: I posted a couple of threads on this subject. This should help. Do a search on the Canon part number for the remote release and you should be able to get a cheap knockoff for about $8.

Weight of camera w/o lens = 17.1 oz
Weight of 10-22mm lens = 13.6 oz

CKY $800 here. Plenty of alternatives to the DSLRs but a point and shoot 8MP and SLR 8MP sensor are two different animals. I went with XT because I have been getting alot of large print requests, wanted the high quality, and picked the XT over the 20D due to lighter weight, comparable quality, and $600 savings. I, personally, could not justify the cost to get the extra features offered by the 20D, though obviously the 20D is the better of the two if cost is no object. You are correct about the kit lens being sufficient for starters.
