I'd consider it if I didn't need the autofocus for the kind of photography I do. Plus I think it's adorable how everyone is griping about this being a 3 year old no-frills DSLR when I'm still using a Fuji DSLR from 2002. Granted it's my starter camera, but I decided a while ago to save up and get a D5000 so all my lenses are compatible (also, it's an awesome camera).
However, in some parallel universe where I didn't get the Fuji and actually had money, I would have jumped on this deal. The Rebel is absolutely a starter camera and there's nothing wrong with that. Just do the research before you drop that kind of money on something as involved as digital photography. Developing snooty brand preferences comes later.
