Go back and check frequently. There's new listings all the time... I missed a chance on the lens that I wanted and then there's 3 more showed up in less than 5 hours!

I found a local guy on craigslist selling a body for 200. I wonder how much i could get a kit lense for.

That sounds like a good price, should be able to pick up the kit lens cheap from someone.

You know what's funny, I just went to Best Buy yesterday in my area and noticed that the Rebel XT was a clearance item. They were selling it for around $250 new with a basic lense. Don't know so much about the SLRs, but I was tempted to purchase it as a starter. Hopefully this isn't just a local sale at Best Buy.

With the release of the XSi I would imagine any 300D's kickin' around would be blown out. If its a 350D, That's a pretty good deal! No one seems to like the silver (except me, lol) so if its a silver its also not a real surprise.

I'm gonna be meeting up with the guy this week. Cant wait to start taking some pics!!!!

I definitely will.

And btw if your price was 200 id rather buy from a forum member rather then some unknown dude. lol but this is a deal i can not pass up.

Hey! IMO save the 70 dollars on the kit lens and get a 28-70mm. I find the pictures taken with the kit lens tend to be a tad bit on the soft side. Or you could spend the 70 and get a 50mm f1.8 prime. Now that is an amazing lens that you can pick up for about 80 brand new.
