Get a Rebel.
Or what ever they call their cheap cropped cameras.
The lenses they make for the cropped 1.5 or 1.6 formats are optimized for
it, the to be inexpensive and are compact and lightweight.
The cropped format DSLR's are way more compact that the full frame ones.
I'm not sure why.
But not looking forward to carrying those full frame format cameras around
with me all day like I do now with my D40x. They are compact even when
compared to my to me honking D200.
Yet the 1.5  or 1.6 formats are many time's better than the pocket point and
shoots; and a step up of course from 2x crop.
