Received my new Canon Digital Rebel Xsi over the weekend. Came with an 18-55 IS Zoom and I added a 55-250 IS Telephoto Zoom. I haven’t had a chance to take it for a test run yet, but at first blush there are three major improvements over my Xt:
1. Megapixals (12.2 versus 8.0) – nuff said.
2. The huge LCD – the images, histograms and menus are now easily readable.
3. The DIGIC III sensor – which, according to a photo magazine review I read, allows the ISO to be set at 800 with hardly any loss in image quality. For now I’m going to set mine at 400.
I’ll post some images after my first outing.
