I talked to the guy. He is unavailable to show the camera until Sunday. I am 5th in line to look at it

how about this one? http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/pho/501621198.html

I talked to this guy also, seems every knowledgable. It does not come with a lense though

I don't have a picture of the actual item, but i have
attached a stock picture of the item. it comes with
everything you need to shoot except a lens. I am not
choosing to sell any of my lenses right now seeing as
they're all L glass.

let me know if you're still interested.

i offer an extra battery and cf card. so no, i'm not
beating that. but a "58mm zoom lens" doesn't really
exist so you might want to ask about that if you
choose to purchase it. same camera, just no lens. the
lens pictured on his is the kit lens- 18-55mm. i don't
know what kind of lens that guy'* talking about.
thanks.
I could get a lense for $100 right?

My camera is getting dirt cheap these days on ebay.

Sample Photos on Flickr
WCBF Photos

dropped it a few times...however the canon is much easier to use and has a better auto-focus feature. Olmpus you need to go in the manual zoom feature to get sharp photos at longer distances regardless of the lens your using. night performance of mine sucks too with the auto-focus

The 18-55mm probably goes for about that much, if not less. Brand new - you can, however, get yourself a 50mm f/1.8. Fixed focal length - no zoom, but you can't beat the resulting image quality and low light ability for the money. A must for any budget SLR shooter looking to expand beyond the 18-55.

Digital Rebel XT is a SMALL Body, you need some lady like hands to be comfy with it IMO...

if I can buy a new one with the 18-55 lense kit for $400, why not just do that?

Holy crap

Silver Rebels look like *** though, but you can't pass this deal, especially with all those goodies

http://www.bestpricecameras.com/prod...?prodid=902399
what the ****, I paid $1280 for mine and that'* at RETAILER COST! Full retail is 1600 here, 1400 in the US.
Do note the warranty though, how it'* only valid in the US.

it went into the stores today and held the XT and XTi in my hands. The XT lcd screen is a joke. Now I really want an XTi
