    Hi everyone. I just looked on my Craigslist for my area and someone is selling a lightly used Canon Rebel D10. 6 megapixels. Said it was used in a design agency but he has no use for it anymore.
    I don't know though if a 10D is any good. The price for the camera body is 400$ then he has a lens for 120$ and another for 60$
    He says to make an offer. I was going to offer 520$ for everything. Its been listed for a while and its christmas time so maybe?!?! Is that a good idea or should I hold out for the Rebel?
    Pleaase help!

    The body goes for about $450 on Keh.com, the lenses are nothing special.

    I would try $500 if its good.

    thanks for letting me know. I think i will try to offer 500 and see what happens. If he doesn't tale it = oh well. Ill wait a wee bit longer for the camera I really wanted anyway.

    You'll definitely love the camera, but I'm really not sure what the "going" rate for them is. Keh.com is a good reference point.

    The camera is a great camera, I've shot with mine since it first came out. I agree though, the lenses aren't great.

    what if i just bought the body since he offers them separate. And then I could get one good lens? Does that make sense?

    That's what I would do. You could get a new 50mm for under $100 I think.

    how exciting. I think I'll check that out and see. I also think I'll check Ebay to make surte they don't have the 10D body even cheaper before i make this guy an offer.
