    Ok so heres the deal. My best friend wants to by my Rebel Xt off of me because he really wants to get into photography. Hes used my camera a bunch and really likes it. I have a 4 year warantee on it and would sell him basically a whole starter kit package and he said hed give me 700 bucks for it, which is pretty darn good. The reason im considering this is because I could then upgrade to the 30d. I found a slighty used one on BandH for a good price
    I always buy stuff from BandH but I was just wondering if any one has bought used from them and could give me some feedback. Thanks alot.

    I would replace that trashy Rebel XT with something better built like the Panasonic L1.

    Is it your goal to spread your Canon-bashing around to every possible thread rather than consolidating it all in the one you've already started? Sheesh, give it a rest already.

    To the OP, I've also had nothing but good experience from B&H, but like you I've only bought new. What kind of a guarantee do you get when buying used? As long as you have a chance to inspect it when it arrives, and can take a few test images, I'd say go for it.

    I wonder if my non-displayed, but probably existing Rep Points will decrease because of what I'll say now.....

    Why don't you find a hole and bury yourself in it?

    :rolleyes:


    To original question:
    I have heard on various photo forums that the B&H ratings on their used cameras are pretty good, but less conservative than KEH.

    With Photokina coming up do you think Canon has anything up their sleeves for the 30d. I highly doubt it seeing as its less than a year old. I was just wondering if maybe they would encorperate the Digic3 chip into the SLR's. Idk, just wondering.
