    A little hard to answer that, since "EOS" includes Rebel K2, Elan 7/7E, 3
    and 1v film cameras, Rebel XT, 30D, 5D, 1D mkIIn and 1Ds mkII digital
    cameras. Any particular one you'd like to compare to a Fuji (again, I
    assume) Finepix Pro S3?

    Or, God forbid, are you wanting a comparison between a DSLR and a POINT &
    SHOOT???
    Still a little hard to do, since the DSLR EOS range spans from $1000 to
    $7000...

    The real question is, what are the pros/cons of DSLR and P&S?
    BTW, lower end DSLR (e.q. Canon EOS) doesn't really cost any more than
    Canon S3.... but it appears that one has to invest in different lenses
    with the former?

    Then why didn't you ask that?
    DSLR pros:
    Flexibility, you can buy lenses as you need different lengths or widths, or
    speeds for that matter.
    Image Quality, larger sensor gives better signal/noise ratio, has other
    advantages.
    Upgrade path, part of the flexibility, you don't have to buy a new camera
    when you find that you need a wider or longer lens, or larger aperture.
    And, as you improve, you can upgrade bodies without having to buy new
    lenses.
    Image acquisition speed. DSLR bodies are available that will hit 8 frame
    per second, and nearly all of them have faster response times than point and
    shoots.
    DSLR cons:
    Weight
    Expense
    Size
    Complexity.

    P&S pros
    size
    Weight
    simplicity
    potental lower cost

    Cons
    lack of flexibility
    Lesser (won't say "poorer) image quality.
