    Decide on the lenses you intend to get and it will be clearer for you. In the end, it's the lenses thats going to cost you.

    You wouldn't want to change brands when you have more lenses. So what you decide now is kinda long term.

    In terms of entry-level and specs, I believe the Canon has more features. Go to dpreview to get more information on them.

    if u have the spare cash, get the 500D
    if u on budget get the A200..either way both are good camera suited for beginner , except that 500D is a newer model with more advance spec.

    A200 and 500D not really in same league
    price is about $400 diff
    if budget get A200
    if mid budget then its 500D

    Have a read here http://www.anandtech.com/digitalcame...oc.aspx?i=3434 - entry DSLR roundup from a non-photography site.

    Retail price:
    A200 kit - $888
    500D kit - $1399

    Whether the features of 500D are worth the extra $500+, you have to decide it yourself.

    you should be comparing the new A380 with the 500D, or at least A330.

    Agree with the bros. You're comparing apple with orange.

    Personally I would go for the A200 and use the extra cash to get a better lens. Afterall, you would upgrade your body more frequent than your lens.
