    Found one on Craigslist for $700. It appears to be gently used and comes with the 18-55 kit lens. Decisions decisions.

    What say you OT?? Is the price good??

    18-55 is worth nothing but a trinket to resell with a camera... You can find a better deal IMO, but it isn't terrible...not great.

    I realize that this lens can be purchased for $100 but the price of a new 20D is around $1200 iirc.

    Thanks. I planned to offer $500 and see if the seller bites.

    Lens shouldn't be purchased for anything more than free.


    You should be able to get a 20d + extra battery + grip for 800.

    I think Adorama still has some 20d bodies for $649. They're refurbs, but most people who bought them reported that they were brand new. Oh and you might find this link handy, some find that it works, but some find that it's bullshit. Either way, check it out.

  10. I've seen used 20d's go for $600-650 on places like FM and POTN. :dunno:

    kit lens is garbage, sometimes people give them away or sell them for $20-$50.
