    Got one locked in with grip for 900 shipped. I figured I can sell my 20d with kit lens for 650ish, so thats only $250 which gives me more MP and higher ISO. I dont care about liveview really but maybe ill use it once in a while.

    liveview is helpful for nighttime tripod shots when you cover the viewfinder

    Wisconsin. Seriously.
    That's what I said too about the liveview, but I've used it more than I care to admit. :o (wierd angles, cramped spaces, and just plain being lazy)

    But it's a nice piece, you'll love it for sure.

    before you upgrade I have to ask, what lenses do you have

    Just recently it seems the 20d has gone down in price. I sold a 20d with kit lens three or four months ago for $750 back when i flipped them on craigslist. We'll see what hapens.

    I'm sure you'll be able to find someone willing to pay that much on Craigslist.. There's always someone willing to pay

    I was going to upgrade straight to the 5d but I think that's overkill for me at this point. Still tons to learn. But the 20d is too tiny. hehe. I'm leaving for ten days on Friday though so I doubt I'll get it til i return.

    It's going to be quite an upgrade methinks, although I'm really bummed it isn't 12 megapixels. I already have the 28-135 tho, so I'm just getting the body.

    I'm getting it new for 844. I have the 18-55, 28 - 135, 75-300 (POS lens), and the 10-22. I use the 18-55 for filters only (I have magnifiers on it for extreme close up) and I almost never use the 75-300.

    Whoa, where you getting it new for 844?

    I got mine, a few months used, for 900 shipped but it comes with 2 batts and the battery grip.
