This is probably the best deal on a camera right now. It has massive capabilities with a low price. This has the sensor from the 50D, and a newer processor. It shoots fast, and accurately. It comes with all the extra technology that all the previous Canon cameras have, sensor cleaning, Live View, and such, but this time it also has video mode! The video mode will shoot in 768 or 1080. In 768 it does 30 frames a second, which is standard, but in 1080 it will only do 20 fps which is a bit slow. You will notice a lack of smoothness in your videos but it isn't that bad. This might be due to the single processor in the camera, where the higher end XD cameras hav 2 or 3 to deal with the information. Anyway, the chance to use all your awesome lenses for making movies is nothing short of...well, really really awesome. Just think, you can do movies with your macro lens; no bug is safe! Pros: Everything. My "Cons" are just nit picking. Look at the price again! Cons: 20 fps at 1080. Shutter is only rated to 50,000 shots, whereas the 40D and 50D are rated for 100,000. It uses SDHC cards, so most people upgrading will have to buy new memory. It is still a Rebel and thus is very small; hard to grab onto for certain large handed people
