The list price will be $699.99, slipping in between the higher-end 12-megapixel Rebel XSi and the 10-megapixel Rebel XTi, which it essentially replaces. You'll likely be able to get the XTi for slightly less than the XS, though both share many specs, since the XS improves on the XTi with its Live View mode and newer Digic III processor among other improvements (though it does drop down to a 7-point autofocus system to keep costs down).

DP Review has a detailed preview of the Rebel XS (aka EOS 1000D in Europe).

CNET's Crave has posted a hands-on preview video.
