I was lucky in having some money left to me so I treated myself to a Canon EOS 50D.
I am really pleased with it but it is quite heavy.

I use the Canon Rebel XSi, I have the basic lens that came with the camera, a telephoto zoom (just a basic one) and a Tamron Macro lens. Some of my pics can be seen here My Equine Photography -Pic Heavy :)

I use a Canon Rebel t2i. My dad owns a Nikon and I found it much easier to program the Canon!

Here are some shots I took with my new Canon t4i, and my "magic" 70-200 F4L lens (this thing is tack sharp and produces some amazing shots). The t4i is very easy to use because of the touch screen. The other nice thing about it is that it has the "higher-end" autofocus sensors, so it does a better job focusing in more challenging situations. 5 FPS shooting is also helpful for catching jumps, etc.

That is some serious sharpness there! Great pics
Budgets going to play a big factor as well..
Forgive me if this is a really stupid question but can you get lenses with a built-in continuous auto-focus?

I'm pretty sure all of the Canon EF autofocus lenses can do "AF Servo" where they can follow a moving subject. This is a function of the camera, not the lens AFAIK. Some lenses are more responsive than others - my 70-200 "L" lens has an ultrasonic ring motor, which makes it faster to focus than some of the lower-end lenses.

There are also new "STM" stepper-motor lenses, which are optimized for continuous focus during video shooting (which the t4i supports as well), but this still works with regular lenses, they're just louder and potentially slower, but it still works.
