I'm mostly looking for for something to be tripod mounted indoors for some macro/standard stills. I'd also like something quicker than any of my current P&S models. I played with my friends Canon Rebel Xt and I love it so far. And I've already paid more than that cost new for some of the cameras I already have and I think the image quality and adjustability is outstanding for my intentions. She's thinking of upgrading to the XTi and I could probably get her Xt for a fraction of the cost of a non dSLR that "might" do what I'm looking for. How can I go wrong?
