    As the title reads... I really want a Canon XTi.

    I have a hook up for Dyson Vacuums and am willing to make a deal. Either trade a Dyson and cash or outright trade for a gently used one.

    Any help in acquiring an XTi at a great price is appreciated.

    I think I paid about $700, but my friend hooked me up with a killer discount from Best Buy.

    No he didnt. He either took the hit himself, or stole it and it was all profit for him. The mark-up on DSLR's there is almost nothing.

    If by killer discount you mean no more than $50 off Best Buy's retail price, then yes you got a "killer discount." Like i said, there is almost NO mark up on DSLR's themselves.

    Damn too bad your not local to San Fran. I just got an XTI, but it didn't have some of the features I wanted so I ordered a 40d insted. I'm supposed to send the XTI back to the place, but I'm going to take a hit on shipping.
    So far I've had good luck with quest4cameras.com so far, but I've heard of some complaints about them. If I were you I would not get the XTI with the lens kit. I would get the body only ($527), and pick up a better lens from Sigma or Tamron. Also check out microcenter.com for your compact flash card. Their 4gb store brand (marketed as 266x) is actualy made by Sansa, but costs alot less. There are a couple of stores in the Chicago area. I used to frequent their store in the DC area alot and always got great deals. Hope this helps.

    I'd buy Chimpo's or someone else's used 20D before an Xti. Cheaper too.

    if you get the 12% off coupons from Best Buy, even though it says you can't use it on a DSLR, you can. well, i would make sure you get one of the doofus cashiers to ring you up.

    i figured they'd have something in hte computer to alert them about it, but they didnt.

    They had something in there when I worked there to stop the coupon from working :rofl: But a lot of times our managers would override it :o
