I am not a follower of Canon pricing, but this seemed like a screaming deal. Vanns.com is a legit site. I bought my Omnivibe IPOD sound dock from them and received it quickly. A few others I know have as well.
its now a 3 generation old camera, but not a bad deal. They have since come out with the XTi and the XSi, both have an upgrade in mp and features. that lens is has also been upgraded to a wider angle to help with the cropped sensors.
