I am also a very happy Canon user, but dragging around my 5D or my 50D with a couple of lenses is a very heavy proposition. I do have an xti, but I have never been crazy about the ergonomics of that cam.

My wife bought me the E520 with the 2 lens kit (14-42 and 40-150) recently for less then $500.00. Although an upgrade to the 14-54 or 12-60 is very tempting, it defeats the purpose of being able to carry a relatively light weight kit around with me. I can get a decent cam with focal length from 28-300 (equivalent) in a small bag(I have one of those small expensive British made canvas and leather bags which will not accommodate my Canon equipment).

The kit lenses are excellent but there are obvious compromises with this outfit.
