Canon needs a $499 model NOW!!!

My brother is interested in stepping up from his Sony P&S and wanted to know how to get the most bang for his buck, so I took him to a Wolf Camera to look at some entry-level SLRs.

I'm a longtime Canon shooter and supporter but there's no denying that Nikon is making itself MUCH easier for newbies to get on board by leaving their D40 on the market. A $499 SLR - especially with the nice bundle Nikon offers via Wolf - is incredibly enticing to a guy like my brother and it's hard to make the case that Canon is worth the premium price.

I like the specs on the Rebel XS but I think Canon is really missing the boat on price point - especially in these economic times.
