    bhphotovideo.com may be higher in price than some scambay sellers but if you order from them you dont have to worry about getting ripped off or any issues if there is something wrong with the item... other than that go to scambay and get yourself something there.

    b&h is extremely reputible, and all around excellent service.

    Purchased from newegg w/1GB CF & reader for $1058 shipped (kit w/lens). Unfortunately, to get this price I went with silver (they were out of black and I didn't want to wait).

    I just bought a 300D with the Kit Lens. I didn't want to spend an extra 250+ for the XT since this is my first DSLR.

    http://www.dealtime.com/xPC-Canon_D...Id-G~CT-4~SRID-61ed2c6b470ec564632137a6~AT-DD

    This is a good site that list all the prices. Only buy from their 'trusted' stores. Even with the 'trusted' ones, read up on the latest review of the merchant.

    I bought mine 2 weeks ago from Best Buy for $899. It was $959 after tax, but I got it that day and $30 back through my Best Buy rewardzone card.

    I see the prices has been dropping a bit more lately to near $900 shipped now at some of these online places. :eek3:

    way i see it is.. why spend the money on one camera when you are already planning to get another? you are just going to lose money when you go to sell.

    buy the best you can afford. that way it lasts you longer and can become a backup camera if you really get into photography and photojournalism.

    when did I say I was planning to get another? and who said I was going to sell? right now, this is the best I can afford. I was going to go with a high end non SLR but It was around the same price as the 300D.
