I have a Canon PowerShot S80, 8 mega pixels, 28 mm wide angle. I like how quickly it starts up and I like the picture quality. The software to download pix to the puter is good too. There are lots and lots of features on this camera which, if one took the time to figure out, would be wonderful - I haven't done that - I take everything in auto mode. It is a very small size so I take this camera when I'm hiking.
I also have a Canon Rebel XT - and I agree, the lens that comes with it is crappy. I got a zoom lens and it's fantastic. The size is cumbersome - especially carting around two lenses and extra batteries but the picture quality is good. Again, there are tons of features on this camera that probably do amazing things - but I haven't figured them all out yet .
