sony may be an allright camera, i don't know. however, there's something to be said for going with the leading manufactureres of DSLRs (nikon or canon). I would never buy a sony DSLR. there's simply more options elsewhere.
I have to say that i don't know anything about sony dslrs, but i wouldn't fuck around personally.
Between the 2 I would say the XT. Sony bought out Minolta (not improving it much). Canon has been making DSLR's alot longer than Sony (even Minolta for that matter). Leave Sony to point and shoots or radios or video stuff.
go with the canon. there are so many difrent options with it. You can use so many difrent lenses. I went with the canon xti 10 mp. You can do tons of things with the camera wothout even biying anythign else.
