    your convincing points: it's much better than XT series.

    people are still going to ask -_-

    can you at least explain WHY they're better than the XT series?

    i got my XT for $350 with the kit lens, muuuch cheaper than this

    But the XTI is how much? And the XSI? I believe when he said XT series, he meant the rebel series

    and just because it is.

    Performance, build quality, image quality (partially).

    XT series = beginner/consumer cameras

    10/20/30/40D = (Semi)Pro cameras

    Would you buy a brand new car for $20000 or one that's been driven, wrecked, and repaired for $19000?

    not the best analogy. i've bought refurbed stuff plenty of times before and all functioned like new (and LOOKED like new)

    and there is no such thing as a refurbed car for just 1000 bucks cheaper. i don't even think they make refurbed cars...

    fairly inaccurate**

    refurbished items in 95% of cases are not defective in the first place and were returned within some 30 day guarantee, then polished up and resold for cheaper. win-win in my book. but you can spend the extra $50-100 for personal satisfaction. whatever you like
