Ok, I went out yesterday to look at the DX100? I think might has misplaced the letters and numbers, and am totally in love with it...
But while I was at the store, they told me about the cannon digital rebel, that comes out sometime this fall...Needless to say I am the first one on the waiting list for this Camera when it comes in...
Now the question, I have researched it on the internet, and read about it in the store, Has anyone here heard anything good or bad about this cannon. I like the Price, it is about $1000 US, and it comes as a kit, body+Lense and uses CF, which is what my Nikon uses now...
I was just wondering if anyone else knew anything about it, Or maybe just say "Hell yeah that is a great camera!" LOL
Anyway any feedback about this would be nice...
I heard many good things about the outcoming Rebel and the price is very atractive. Some folks in a photo forum spoke about some AF problems though. Also would I wait before buying a whole new cam for the bugs to be fixed and don't forget that Minolta brought out, it seems, an amazing A1 bridge cam. It has an "anti shake" option which seems to be amazing, no more tripod needed at telephotos. The AF is very fast and it brings high quality photos. The 28-200mm lens with manual zoom is great.
Sony brought out a 8mp cam which is very close to the Minolta.
I would check this out if I were you and if you got the money for the Nikon you should be able to buy a 10D from Canon.
That will be my next cam but I'll compare it first with some concurents before
Rainer, thanks, I was hoping you would respond to this one...I have alot of trust in what you say about digital cams.
My new camera....
...is a Canon 10D. I love it. I am still trying out all the functions on it, but so far, I don't have a single complaint.
You can see my pictures on my photography web site.

The Canon EOS Digital rebel is very nice, it has many many features. The lens that comes with it is designed specifically for the camera. Al EF lens fit it so it doesnt matter which lens you want, have or need, it will fit righ on it. It is a 6.3 mp camera. Based off the EOS Rebel II. I shoot an analog minolta, have shot plenty of canons, and nikon over the years, and when i was younger. Their equipment is right on, their lens are uncomparable in my opinion, and a half to a dozen professional friends who shoot. The 10D just has a few more functions on the camera for abotu 600$ us dollars more. the rebel manual iso mode goes from 100-1600 and can be pushed. You will not need moer than 1600 iso. Rarely if you do, i know if what i do and what i plan on doing is still would never use 1600 iso. It has the CMOS Sensor just like the 10D. So for the money and the lens it comes with, that would be my purchase.
Raniers minolta is a nice camera too, it is right up there in the top 5 of affordable digitals. I almost purchased that one, but decided that the canon was my best option. The ultrasonic lenses and clarity of the lens are awesome. I also like the feel and ease of use of a canon. But whether it has bugs or not they all seem to be obsolete 6 months later. They just keep upgrading and making them more and more like a SLR. So it just comes down to the price and what you are after. I would say Canon, Minolta Nikon are amoung the best digi's the have right now, affordable wise..If you get up into the high ones it is a different story.
When buying any digital camera you need to determine your need, (or wants) for the next couple of years, because all digital cameras are basicly throw away cameras. I recently purchased a Canon 10D and I'm very happy and impressed by the quality of the images it produces. Having said that, there are still some things my 35 year old Canon F1 film camera does better, and slides still capture things that digital can't. I know up front that my excellent (at the moment ) Canon 10D will not be around in 35 years, but my Canon F1 will still function for another 35 years.

oh yeah sam, definately, that is why i will still have an analog one, because slides are just amazing. That is why when i purchase a digi it will be under a $1000 dollars for the simple fact of them being so fined tuned and upgraded. My Minolta x700 is over 15 years old. And that is what i continue to shot with, missing alot of filters and lens.
But it takes great pictures, and when i shoot slide no comparision..

no EF lens compatibility like the EOS-10 which i suppose is meaningless unless you already own a bunch of EF lenses like i did before i bought the EOS-10D
here is a review link:

TechZsue: Check http://www.dpreview.com ,it can use EF or EF-S lenses.
I was thinking of buying one for my daughter's birthday so she could stop dropping by to take my 10D for the weekend, but it's missing too much.

My bad. I confess, i didn't actually read the review but heard my husband mention something about no EF lense compatibility.
Sounds like a great camera.
