    I've seen a few on FM for ~$1000, just wasn't sure if that was a competitive price or not.

    I haven't found any for under $1050 yet and I've been looking as well.

    I'm not in a rush, I've got my Rebel XT for now and I'm waiting for my tax return anyway.

    That is a terrible price when they are $1,078-$1149 new, shipped.

    Yeah I'm not sure I can justify spending $100 less for a used camera.

    If you're going to pay over $900 used just buy new.

    unless you can find a great deal (which i think i did), i don't think the 40D has been out long enough to really go down in the used market.

    i'd just buy new.

    I thought you might chime in. Out of curiosity, and if you're willing to share, what did you find yours for used?

    I'm not hung up on new/used, I'm just trying to maximize my catch monies.

    When did Dell start selling Canon cameras?? I am not good with keeping up with you young people and all your wild and crazy trends.
