    As stated in some of my posts I was considering getting a 40D if someone bought my XS. Well someone offered what I wanted so I'm on the search for a nice 40D with its stock lens.

    Anyone have experience with buying cameras on Ebay, Craigslist or secondhand? Any advice on buying used? Things I should look for? Thanks guys

    one and only problem i have with buying cameras on Ebay is that all the ones i looked into buying were all refurbished old and reused models .. some people are okay with it but tbh for the extra little bit of money, having the warranty and re-assurance of owning a brand new camera is priceless .. Its just my opinion .. U just need to be cautious of what who and where you are buying :)
