    Alrighty, sold my XT, now I want a 20D or a 30D....

    Found a used 30D body for $900 and a used 20D with 50mm 1.8 (selling the one I have with my body) for $700....

    Is the larger screen worth $200??? (Keep in mind I have the same size screen on my XT and I have no issues with it)

    So do I keep the $200 I'll save with the 20D and get a 10-22 or buy the 30D?

    i dont think it is but i also think you can get more with the 20d for that price. 700 for the body and 50mm alone seems a bit high to me

    This is the 20D I am referencing to

    He is shipping, paypal fees included and is really clean.....good rep too on ebay. There are some other 20Ds on FM and POTN for about the same price but dont include shipping and paypal....

    Have you seen any anywhere else for a better deal?

    The screen alone is worth it :dunno:
     
  6. yeah I like the 30d over the 20d :hs:

    But both cameras take great pictures so it all depends on if you want the bigger screen so you can chimp better and have more swet to wipe off

    iso adjustments in 1/3rd stops can be a nice feature for some people.
