    Hi all.
    I love this site so much. I love the attititude and everyones input. Being a Noob, i have come across what i call a "pretty good deal". A used(9month) Canon 10D with a canon 20-35mm USM lens. He is asking 650 obo. Is this a good deal? I was looking into a NIKON D70 with 18-70mm lens that go for about that price(used and ebay)? Which is the better deal? Or if you have a better suggestion, let me know!
    Thanks in advance!

    I'd check Ebay and see what used 10D's are going for. $650 may not be a bad deal, but I don't think it's a great deal. You can get a brand new Canon Rebel XT with zoom lens for $785 at B & H Photo.

    I agree with Matt. For that price, you are better off spending a bit more for a new camera. Digitals don't last like Pentax K1000s.

    and that lens is pretty limited for a walk around lens.

    I have to agree with what everyone else is saying, just throw in an extra 200 bucks and get yourself a nice new camera and then get the "no matter what you do well give a new camera" warranty for the extra 150 bucks.
