    except for a few not very crucial features, these cameras look equally capable. A while back, I was planning on getting the 10D but the rebel looks like it's just as capable for my needs and except I save another $500 for accessories.

    $500 seems like a lot for such minor differences... am I missing out on something?

    you're right it's just a castrated 10D - if you don't need any of these features, go for the Rebel... first get yourself a better/faster lens. I would recommend the 50mm f1.8 for just $80 or so

    I just scanned through ebay looking for this camera and some guy is selling them for $220 US flat. No bidding. I'll bet you they're stripped of warranty though or some other significant things that would otherwise be packaged.

    Edit: Actually I guess it does have the warranty. Being sold out of New York though. Maybe the items are hot...but it it's a featured item. Arrgh seems to good to be true but what if it is true?
