For an old SLR I still wish I had my old XTi.  Even more simple and actually great image quality under iso 800.  And I just loved the shutter quality.  It was quiet and muted, yet very solid feeling.  I eventually worked up to a T2i which I still keep to this day.  I let the kids take it with them to granny's house with a 50 1.4

It just does not seem worth it to sell for a couple hundred bucks...

The XSi is my first and only dslr(since dec 2009) but I'm seriously considering upgrading to a 6D. I primarily shoot outdoor sports nowadays(used to do birds in flight) and with the 70-200mm f/2.8 is ii, it's perfect.. in daylight. Reason I'm considering upgrading to the 6D is for the ISO and low light performance. But even if I get the 6D, I'm still going to keep the XSi as a backup body. I agree with celltech on that I don't think it is worth it to sell.

Had an XSI as my first camera, upgraded a couple months later to a T1i when some guy offered me more then I paid for it.  I would definitely recommend going for the T1i, I've used photos from it for magazine covers and the greater iso range helps a lot.

I've had mine since June 2009, and still use it to this day. I recently used it extensively during the TT Races in the Isle of Man back in June, and at that point I realized my XSI was lagging behind in AF, burst mode, and RAW buffer, even with L-glass attached. It's still a great DSLR, and one I plan on keeping for years to come to use as a back-up when I upgrade to a newer camera. My brother just yesterday offered to sell his 7D to me for a reasonable price, so I've been seriously considering his offer.

Awesome St. Louis ballon race photo though I didn't see the bunny.

I just sold my xti/kit lens and got more than 300 equivalent (got store credit and no sales tax). Got me a good uv filter, polarizer, flash cord and diffuser. 

Now I just have 6d and 2ti. 
6d, 2ti,  50 1.4, 40 2.8, 17-40, 24-105, 24-70ii, 70-200 ii. 50-250
