    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.

    buy from a reputable dealer. Check resellerratings.com for info on that site. If you have to ask, its likely too good to be true. I got bit by Photoconnection myself. Ended up paying nearly double the going rate for an XTi before all the dust settled. Save yourself money and headache and head to B&H. Just my 2 cents.

    Here is the link to reseller ratings http://resellerratings.com Oh and their 6 month rating is a 0.24 out of 10 so I would say they are disreputable.

    0.24 out of 10 probably passes right through disreputable to criminal.

    Check at BHphotovideo, Adorama and Amazon to get an idea of what typical pricing should be.

    The rage at SlickDeals is either the Dell EPP + coupon deal or the eBay + Live.com cash back combination.
