I use the zoom end of a camera more then the wide end, but i want to see for myself if 28mm is enough. (for the moment, as i probably shall look for something like a 16-35 or whatever when i have enough money)

I picked up the 30D (and carefully avoided picking up the 5D since they said they were one of very few Best Buy stores that even sold them). It felt good in my hands and I liked the 5fps capability, so I bought one.
I figured that the 5D would be over my head for now, but I could always grow into it with time, by which time it should be much cheaper in the used market.
I need to get a small videocamera to mount on the Atom's rollbar as well, which can be used in conjunction with a data acquisition system such as Traqmate: http://www.traqmate.com/products_complete.php to improve my driving performance. Yet another fun hobby!
Xeno7651, whether a body is worth it to you really depends on what features really matter to you and comfort. Is there something that was lacking about the Digital Rebel in which you want more of? Have you out grown it? Pretty much all modern DSLRs are better than that since they have more controls and better performance. Anything would really be an upgrade.
You can't also forget that the more lenses you have and the better quality they are, you are better off as opposed to having a more expensive body (if you cannot make use of it).
