    the macro lens is worth about $300 usd used so $700 for the 20D is decent, especially with only 3900 clicks.

    it's not difficult to clean a sensor once you get the hang of it.

    if you want a warranty, buy new. I've bought 3 bodies used and all it really takes is 5-10 minutes to clean the sensor. Other than that, there's not much to worry about.

    Plus, a blower will remove dust a good majority of the time, unless they took off a lens and rubbed the opening in a sand pit.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me, dood. The 60mm f/2.8 takes some incredibly sharp pictures.
