Camera Labs tested out the Canon EOS 1000D / Digital Rebel X recently and even compared it to other DSLRs like the Nikon D60 and the Sony Alpha DSLR-A200. The Rebel X was liked for its stellar image quality, the kit lens and the accurate Live View. However the Achilles heel of the Rebel X is its slow RAW continuous shooting mode and its launch price.
"The 1000D / XS will find itself discounted to a more competitive price in the near future, but until then, it makes more sense to go for one of its rivals, or spend a little more on the 450D / XSi. Once those discounts kick-in though, the 1000D / XS will become a real contender in the entry-level market. There’s certainly some very strong competition you should also weigh-up, but by delivering all the features budget DSLR buyers look for, the 1000D / XS looks set to be another best-seller for Canon."
