My 300D that I bought off Ebay came with 3 batteries, a remote release and a battery grip. After getting my 30D I realised I had to have a battery grip (I get a blister without it), so that was another $160 or so. Now I find that the 30D takes a different remote... which is $50. Anybody own the Adorama brand remote for the 30D? I think it's $33 or so. The remote with all the fancy functions for $130 is nifty, but I doubt I'd use them. EDIT: And before I made this thread, I checked Nikon's prices, they do the same thing.
