in the tribune classified ads i found a camera for sale and i thought it was a good deal. i a nikon guy, and don't know that much about canon's and how much they go for, but i have a general idea, and think this deal is alright.

-canon eos 30-d
-ef 70-200mm is usm [idk if it's the f/2.8 or f/4]
-efs 18-55mm usm
-430ex speedlight
-case, filters and more

they're asking $2000 for all. i thought that was reasonalbe. especially if it's the f/2.8 70-200

just letting you guys know

If it is the F/2,8 it is a steal. If it is the F/4 it is a fair price since the 30d body averages between $800-$1200 new and the F/4 70-200 USM lens averages around $1000-$1200 new.

Also, the amount of shutter actuatutions should be checked before buying a used camera as well.

Very interesting find Randall.

Once I come up with $1500 I was planning on getting either a rebel xti or a canon eos 40-d? But 30-d is almost as nice?

30D is better than the Rebel, not quite as good as the 40d, its a 2MP difference between the 30 and 40, if you have the extra $ I'd go 40D, but I wouldn't hesitate in buying the 30D if you wanted the extra $ to go towards lenses.

i own the 30D, and its great. i might try to find the guy and see if he is willing to split up the package because i really want the 70-200, especially if its the f/2.8, which i doubt because that lens alone goes for $1600 new.

randall, thanks for the heads up. Was there a phone number or email in the listing?

A guy in my car club is selling his d70; a friend of a friend type of scenario.
sounds like a good price, $500 or so I think it says. anyhoo, I'll forward your email, phonenumber, whatever if you'd like.

cool

i'll most likely be going for a d80 though...thanks anyway

also...if anybody is interested in my d40x, i'd be throwing in my 18-55mm kit lens and my 50mm f/1.8 into the mix as well

How much for the kit Randall? camera and 2 lenses?
MOD

well i bought all of that equipment brand new in june, so even though it's used, it's in awesome condition. and the camera and kit lens still have lots of time left on the extended full coverage best buy warranty.

i'd like to be able to get close to $700 or so for everything. if it's a bit less, that's just fine. i can get a d80 body from b&h for just under $800, so i'd like to make the switch as inexpensively as i can.
