    I'm trying to get into photography. I found it for $439 with free shipping and no tax. It's brand new, not refurbished. Good deal?

    Personally I rather get used that is being sold locally. I dont think that is that good of a deal. Look on craigslist in your area.

    I see. Well it's from a canon retailer (with standard 18-55) lens. I mean for $50 difference I'd rather get it brand new than used from someone. Because you never know what could be wrong with it.

    But as everyone selling for $499 elsewhere, that's the cheapest I could find.

    Here's the link

    for sale 500D Canon EOS

    Is that good?
    Also, I don't have much cash at hand so purchasing it w/ a cc will be better for me. But that $200 one, is that good?

    Personally I will stay away from them. Looks too fishy.

    I figured. But I would have only bought it if he/she met me locally at the mall or something. I might end up getting the XS for $439 from butterfly photo because it's not much of a deal on craiglist with everything else I see in my local area.

    I've heard Canon will be rolling out w/ new models in late August? Is that a good time to buy it? Perhaps price will drop more...

    Another option would be to get a refurbished one from Adorama for $399 with free shipping -- cheaper price and more reputable seller (than Butterfly) if you are okay with refurbished.
