Just a quickie to all those in the know. I'm looking for my first DSLR. I'm keen for a Canon as I have a Canon compact that has always been good to me and want to remain with them. I have been looking into the 450d, but was wondering whether its worth spending a little bit more to get the 500d? It will be used for general photography, family, landscape, wildlife etc etc. although I'm not all that fussy about having the HD video feature, and because of that wondered if the 450d would sufice?

Many thanks,
