get a nikon,
the d70 has a sturdier body than the xt, and ahs better colour controls.
nikon's just feel right, everythign is in the right place on them.
the lens it comes with it is actually usefull, then you can buy one of the best lenses made for it, the 50mm 1.8 for about 100 bucks, used or new
the 1.4 is also good, not much sharper, but it stops down a bit lower.
the nikon has the ability of a digi fisheye the 10.5mm dx, and it has a nice 75-300 which puts out great highlight rendition and balances fairly nice.
add to that a much better flash line IMO the sb600 and sb800 with built in wireless technology is something that I take full advantage off.
