Canon Rebel Xsi – Glad I Got A Canon Xsi

I purchased the Canon Rebel Xsi back in April. I debated for two months as this was going to be my first real DSLR. I looked at the 40D, the 50D, the XTi and I just ended up making a simple choice (I knew I wanted Canon) based on the price, features, the pixel count, the lenses available and my skill level. This camera has lived up to my expectations and I am glad I decided on the Canon XSi Rebel. I also purchased a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 to go with it and the combination is excellent! Get a Canon if you are not sure what to get.

Canon Rebel Xsi – Very Nise Prosumer SLR

I bought it for my wife, and she just loves it. This camera is fast, produces good colors, and has effective AF, little bit more effective than my Nikon D80. It also somewhat lighter than D80, which is important for my wife. I like the option to buy body only; I combined it with Tamron 18-270 mm VC lens, that covers the whole range we need, from wide-angle to telephoto. And you can find great variety of quality lenses for it from Canon, Tamron and Sigma.

On the downside, it’s missing the ability to switch the AF mode from auto to single shot to continuous with push of the button, we have to use menu to do it. I found this option very convenient in my D80.

In general, so far I like Canon XSi Rebel.

Canon Rebel XSi – Very Pleased

Just got it out of the box today and took a few test pics. Got it as a replacement for my XTi, which I had lost. So far I’m very impressed with the camera, but I’ve only taken a few indoor, low-light pics so far. The camera feels solid and has all the features the enthusiast would need. As others have mentioned it doesn’t have quite the best ergonomic fit because the grip is a bit small, but it didn’t affect my 5-star rating.

Very impressed with the Image Stabilizing Lens. It kicks the butt of the Tamron that I had on my XTi.

Its currently June 2009, and as I write this I have to say I was thinking of getting an XS, but at the moment the Canon XSi Rebel does not cost that much more, and Canon has a great deal at the moment where if you get the kit together with an Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II Lens for EOS Digital Slr Rebel XT, XTI, 20D & 30D Digital Camera IS lens you get $200 off of the purchase price, where with the ES you can get a different lens for $100 off, effectively making both combos about the same price on Amazon. Either way, if you are OK with having the extra hassle of changing lenses, this promotion makes it a lot more affordable to have a range of 18mm to circa 200mm than buying a mega zoom lens like I had before. Pictures will be better too since each lens is more dedicated.
