    350D... use the money you saved on at least a piece of good quality lens and you will be rewarded by much better quality images.

    wads ur total budget?

    there's a nv ending list of items 2 buy. here's a few...

    . cam body (basic)
    . lense/s (no end 2 tis)
    . tripod
    . cam bag

    even mid price of every item here adds up 2 a hefty sum...

    r u buying 4 leisure or work? u may like 2 keep it manageable in weight & size 4 travels.

    Agree with tao. No point buying a 20D if you don't know how to use the extra functions.

    Buy the 350D and the extra money to buy a better lens... most of the time, it's the quality of the lens that make or break a picture, not the camera body.

    Whichever you choose, look for a used body. Good bargains going around now. Not much of a price differential between a used 20D and 350D, might as well go for the 20D, it's a much more capable body and will be a little more futureproof compared to its smaller cousin.
