What do you think, and why?

Thanks in advance for all your input. I take wrestling, basketball,
outdoor pics, and lately I have started to like extreem closeup's.

Honestly, the next best camera is the XTi. If I were on a tight budget, and I didn't already have a 5D, then I would get an XTi, kit lens (or maybe a Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Macro or Tamron 17-50 XR Di II if I could afford it) and a 50mm f/1.8. Later, I would add a 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS zoom and a macro lens.
