I'm not trying to start a "which brand is better" debate, just why you chose the Canon that you did.
I have 3 Canon bodies; the 300D (350D precursor), the 20D and the 5D.
The 350D is a good "beginner" dSLR. However, you will quickly grow out of it. You will tire of the slow burst speed and the amount of time it takes for the buffer dump to flash card. Not to mention, no PC sync socket to connect studio lights. (You can get around this using a hotshoe adapter or a hot shoe remote for your strobes)
Anyways.. The 20D/30D is your best bet for APS-C (1.6 crop) sensor.
Me, I'm loving the 5D. Best investment I've made in the last 2 years!
