About the age of your camera. Actually, if I were going around the world--even partway--I would have at least 2, if not 3 camera bodies with me. My Canon 7D failed when I was on a trip to Colorado once and I was out of luck, because I had no backup. And the 7D was a lot newer then than your 350D is now. It's still a lot newer. The advantages of the newer cameras go beyond image quality as well; bigger, brighter, higher-resolution LCD screens; better autofocus (the T2i has much faster more accurate AF, especially in AI Servo, than the XT or 350D); easier better user interface; faster burst rate; and so on. You could probably get a 550D (T2i) for $300 or so. And also the newer EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 with IS is much better than the pre-IS kit lens. I would strongly recommend upgrading.

Good points.
