I am wanting to buy a new Canon dlsr bundle package with 2 lenses, plus some accessories, but I was wondering which one is best? I am looking for something for a new photography business. Is the xti or the xsi better?

Allan is correct, the XSi is better than the XTi.
I bought the XTi last year(it was bundled with an extra lens at the time) and the XSi was more money and the options were "as necessary" so think bigger brother, better resolution(MP), and a few other things.
My ONLY complaint with my camera(the XTi) is that the viewfinder does not give a live picture, it is only for reviewing pictures, in order to have a live picture you needed the XSi(or D...) but the XSi was more money and as it was the XTi was $700 at the time....
The memory cards are different from the XTi to XSI as they are Compact Flash vs SD
for what I need a camera to do the XTi is perfect(I went to the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas for my honeymoon and the pictures are crisp and clean and look gorgeous).
I think the XTi can be had no for around $400, while the XS is like $550 and XSi is ~$700
the 40 & 50D's are just a bit nicer....but not necessary unless you really are looking for a near pro user camera.....in which case for the money I can direct to others
