strength/robustness
Jan 17, 2005

My girlfriend is eyeing the 300D/DRebel as her preferred DSLR at the moment. I think this camera will be a good choice for her to step up from her Sony P&S. It seems to possess the features that we are looking for at a good price. However we both have some minor concerns about the strength of the plastic casing. Handling the camera in the store didn't give us the impression that it was as robust and sturdy as some other cameras we have looked at. The 10D/20D seem to feel more robust but we ruled them out at this stage mainly due to price.

Anyone out there who can vouch for the strength/robustness of the 300D/DRebel (preferably people who have owned/used this camera for at least several months)?

Thanks,
David
