    Thank you in advance for your response.

    I am in the market for a Rebel XSi. An online seller called "TheCameraProfessionals.com" is offering the XSi (body only) for $229.99 + shipping.

    Is this price too good to be true or do you think there has to be some sort of scam (defective merchandise, overstock, returned merchandise). They claim that they sell only 100% brand New equipment with a full US warranty ... But one never knows.

    Please let me know if you have any experience with this company or if you think this is worthwhile.

    Thank you.

    Anytime you see a price that is more than, say, 10% off of B&H just assume it's a scam.

    That would be 35% off any ebay purchase.
