Can I go wrong with a Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT?

I was planning to get a new digital camera at the end of the year, most likely the Panasonic DMC-FZ50. I had one before, traded it in for a Fuji FinePix F31fd for portability, but I’m missing the zoom lens of the FZ50 a lot.

Yesterday I happened to find a Canon EOS 350D Digital Rebel XT at a real bargain price – EUR 399 for the kit with the 18-55 lens, which is EUR 70 below the cheapest vendor on the net.

Now – do I eBay it off for a higher price and get the Panasonic, or do I keep it? What do you think?

  1. I’d buy the 350D and keep it, especially as you already have a compact camera for when you don’t want to lug around a DSLR.

    A DSLR with zoom lens is basically the same formfactor as a bridge camera like the Pana, but you’re getting much better noise handling due to the larger sensor on the Canon.

    Get the 350D and use the savings to buy another lens, like the Sigma 18-200. Or why not get a fast normal, like the 28/1.8?
