    like the title says i am finally getting mine late ron today, my dad's friend is selling it to me for 430 CAD, it comes with the kit lens, i ve been looking around for a d40 but could not find a good deal on it for the same price, I also know this camera since it was brand new like6 months ago, it probably has like 2-3000 actuations tops... what you guys think? good deal?

    With the XSi about out, that's almost "new" price anymore. Do some searches on the XT for current pricing. You may be able to get a completely new kit for near that price, or get him to come down a little as a used one may not have quite that much value remaining.

    I think it's great! Congrats! Now go shoot!

    When you have another $75USD (equiv) - go get the 50mm f/1.8 -- ridiculously sharp, low light gem, and depth of field wonder. All for very, very little money.
