Hi! First, I just wanted to say that I think the you guys are doing a great job with the site and your'e reviews are well written and informative. I have just finished reading your'e reviews for both the Canon Rebel Xti and the Sony A100, and I can't decide which camera to buy. This will be my first DSLR that I am purchasing and I have roughly $1000.00 to spend. I am really interested in the Canon Rebel Xti, but even if I buy the camera body without the bundled 18-55mm lens, I won't be able to afford a better lens, and the bundled lens seems likes it leaves much to be desired.
Thats why the Sony A100 caught my eye. Im not too sure how well the built in anti-shake really is, and the higher noise levels can definitely be a problem, but overall, it still seems like a really good DSLR and it comes bundled with a better lens than the Rebel Xti for about the same price. Which camera should I purchase? Also, is there a dramatic difference in the image quality between the two?
