    I'm ready to get rid of my XT and step up to a 20D body and I just ran across a decent looking deal on craigslist. $380 for the body with all accessories and manuals in the box, plus a 2gb scandisk ultra II. What do you guys think of that price?

    good eye, i'll ask him about it. i can't believe people are selling XT's with the kit lens for $400 down in LA, if someone would actually pay that i could break even on this deal :o

    I couldn't be happier with this camera. Just the feel of it in my hand vs. my XT and the ease of operation with the scroll wheel on top and the dial on the back is amazing. Now the weather needs to clear up so I can go shooting!

    Nice find! The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the LCD size. I guess I'm a bit spoiled with the 40D's LCD.

    I would've loved to get a 40D but the price difference made the decision for me :mamoru:

    Just so I don't start a new thread, is this a goo deal?

    Canon 20D + BG-E2 Grip + 18-55 kit lens $520
    Body is in great condition, a few minor scuffs here and there but functions perfectly. I'd probably rate it conservatively at 8/10 for cosmetics and 10/10 for function. I'm unsure of the actuations since I bought it used. Comes with strap, charger, oem battery, manuals, software, and cables. Grip is in excellent shape and includes AA magazine and original box. The 18-55mm EFS kit lens is like new and only used a couple times, but is missing the front cap.
