    Big possibility the Sony C.Z. lens will wipe the floor
    with Canon's horrible 18-55mm kit lens that they slap
    on the Rebel XT. For about the same price.

    I don't find my kit lens to be that bad. It doesn't stack up to my 300mm f/4
    L IS in terms of image quality, but nor will that Sony.

    Even if that were true...you can always change the lens on the Canon.
    Can you do that on the Sony?

    Spot metering in the Rebel or 20D?

    No, Of course, to get a better lens your price for your economy Rebel
    suddenly climbs rapidly...
    But then there won't be any dust motes in the Sony either.
    No mirror slap on the Sony to blur images shot at 1/15-1/60 sec
    All cameras have some advantages and disadvantages.
    If the Sony were made of metal, it might make a good pro
    back up body.

    Mirror slap blur at 1/60th?
    What are you basing this statement on?

    I think Rich should buy it. Sony online store says it'll be delivered
    around Thanksgiving. Tell us how good it is. I am very happy with my 20D
    and the ability to change lens. If I have some spare money, I'll get a
    water proof Pentax OptioWPi.

    Oh, just for you, Rich, Canon troll. I took a picture of a deer on my
    backyard using a friend's Pentax *ist DS with 18-55 lens. There is a big
    purple fringe at the back of the deer. Why do you have to complain about
    Canon only? Just to show how stupid you are?

    Says one guy: "Geez, you're fat."
    Says the other, "I may be fat, but you're stupid, and tomorrow I'm going on
    a diet."

    The Sony is what it will always be. The DRebel can put on an L lens.
