    $225 at the most. More if you sell it on CL to a retard.

    That's true, except for the fact that it's an SLR, can use an assortment SLR lenses and flashes, and has fully manual adjustability.

    This isn't a great picture but it was taken with an XT @ iso1600 at night. It's seriously not nearly as bad as you people make it out to be.

    but most users leave a kit lens on it and think they're Ansel Adams. :o

    Some people who own D700's or 5D MkII's think their Ansel Adams too :dunno:

    There is nothing wrong with the XT honestly. The kit lens is the worst thing about the camera. It's obviously not as good as more expensive cameras in many ways, but ultimately the image quality is fine and it's solid and fairly easy to use.

    Then again I've never bought into the whole gear is god thing.

    Prime example.

    Guess which photo was taken with a D200, pocket wizards, and two SB800s.....and guess which was taken with a XTi, kit lens, PW's, 580ex and 430.

    My XT served me well for a long time :dunno:

    Put a good lens in front of it and it does just fine for your average amateur.

    bought an XT to get into using digital SLRs. its a great camera to learn on. not horribly expensive so even if doing the SLR thing ends up not being someone's bag theres not much guilt about the money you spent. and if it sells to someone you can get a bit of money back.
