Here I have a list of 2 Cameras. Each one of the links has different features such as lens or no lens and the number of lens. The prices Shown are the final price after mail in rebate.

OLYMPUS E-500
Body Only - $558.99
Body and 14-45 mm Lens - $604.99
Body and 14-45 mm, 40-150mm - $679.00

Canon Digital Rebel XT
Body Only - $619.99
Body and 15-55mm - $689.99

So the question is whats a better deal? From what I can see it would be one with a lens because I cant find any lens for thell than 100 bucks. Another question is, is a 14-55mm lens any good? The same with the others. Are they any good?

I just bought the Olympus E-500 w/ both lenses. It works great. Since it is such a good camera and comes with two lenses I would say that it is the better deal and will surely get the job done. Now dont mistake what I am saying, I am not implying that an Olympus is a better quality camera than a Canon Rebel. Here is the link to a post here with some pics taken with the E-500. Please keep in mind the photos were taken a medium resolution setting (sq).

Here is a review of both of the cameras.

Olympus - http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympuse500/

Canon - http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos350d/

When you look at the Oly review, when you get to the comparisons you will see a direct comparison to the Rebel XT.

Hope this helps.

Also if flexibility is a concern, I don't know the extent of Olympus's lenses. In fact Olympus uses another brand of lenses, which I can't remember the name of.

Personally I'd say neither, splurge and go with a nikon ;)

Yes, Nikon... Im poor. The only Nikon that I can see getting is the Nikon D50 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6830113131
My Uncle says to always try to get RAW format, from what new egg says the Nikon D50 doesnt have it (hard to believe its a DSLR). I dont want to spend over $1000 by the end of the buying everything I need for the camera like Memory and an extra batter.

Eh? Of course it does. Here's a review. One of the user reviews on newegg even refers to the "awesome RAW capability of the D50."
