Good luck and have fun with what ever one you decide to get.

(I was being a little biased on the whole rebel series.. don't get me wrong its a wonderful line of cameras, and I would say a XS+1855 combo is a nice starting set up)
No worries; I just make recommendations based on the asker's needs. Personally, I'd probably take the 20D myself too. I've been spoiled by the rear wheel, top photo setting buttons, and the very nice body/grip

Hah! It's got about 1100 shutter actuations, with the Canon battery grip and kit lens -- it's essentially brand new. 280 aint gonna happen, but I will entertain offers.

The XS is a nice camera for beginners. It doesn't hold a candle to the xxD series, but unless you've used one long term (read: been spoiled by one), you probably won't notice nor care about the differences.

My only complaint is that it lacks spot metering. The XS also comes with only a 7-point AF system instead of a 9-point all cross-type, but I spend most of my time on the center point anyways.

For the beginner, it is a very good camera IMO. My brother uses one and is very happy with it. I'd imagine it can last you several months before you'd go "I want a new body!".

It's a good little camera. It's good enough to want to keep as a backup, as a *just in case* deal. Realistically, I'd love to have something nicer as a backup, but I'm currently in the hunt for a 1V or a Mamiya 645AF, so that's not going to happen any time soon.

You can probably give yourself a head start selling that 1kW PSU of yours for a good quality 500W.

Alas I don't have enough rep to do so. Every time I help someone they still don't rep
