Decided (tentatively) on a 1000D

12 bit v/s 14 bit is a minor issue

If 12 bit v/s 14 bit is your ONLY concern, rest easy.

Its not that big a deal -- you may get a better gradation in colors - but the effect is quite minor and probably not noticeable in almost all normal photos.

Oh and btw, the 1000D is also a real SLR -- supports all EF/EFS lenses. So I wouldn't worry about that either.

If I were you, I would look for a new XT or XTI -- they are selling really cheap these days and even cheaper in the used market. Take the money you saved to get some really good lenses (maybe the 60mm or 100mm macro)

The 1000D is kinda overpriced for what it does and I am sure the prices would drop fairly quickly in the market -- you'll pay a premium to get it right now.
