    its not good quality, if you look for some of the pics from that camera online you can see a p&s would do better than that slr, I was thinking about getting it too but after seeing what kind of pics it took(noisy) and actually handling the camera, it wanst even worth the 500!


    I got an xti on ebay for 600 with the kit lens look there but be careful

    Yeah, not to mention he's asking more than what you can get one new for, plus it's crap and the only DSLR on craigslist in my area :ugh:

    Too bad I missed out on the $369 XT deal a while back :wtc:

    ebay, craigslist, photo.net, fredmiranda.com

    Those are your best bets. Stay as far away from any 4/3 system camera as you can (Olympus, Panasonic, Leica) and look for used Canon Rebels or 10/20/30D, Nikon D40/50/70/80, Pentax K10D, or even a Sony Alpha. Obviously, your best best is the Nikon/Canon bodies.

    About the only place you'll see a D40's or Rebels with regularity is ebay and on ebay they usually get bid up above $400. Sure, you can get one for that price, but it's more of the exception, not the rule.

    If you already know the answer on where to get one, then why are you asking where to get one? :confused:

    Probably not a lot. It's not like it will suddenly go 1/2 price. Figure about $800 good condition used, and $950~999 closeout new.

    The xxD's hold their value really well. Hell 10D's still regularly get $500.

    I already read like 4 different reviews, the camera seems decent enough, but I dunno about how durable it is..
