I understand where your coming from, but I have had a point and shoot and I really dislike them.
We all do. But they have their place. I'm just saying - you won't be happy with the xti. I bought one used and within a month (give or take) I sold it and got the XSi. Even that wasn't enough. Then there's the lens selection, and of course you'll want a "real" flash. You'll start off with the cheaper models of everything, but you'll see the photos of those with better equipment and you'll just have to have it. Be forwarned, have a good payng job, or get a second job, or both and put your kids to work, too. lol
