    1. canon 350d body only new, 285 + tax

    2. canon 350d body only new, case battery and charger 279 + tax

    3. canon 400d body only new, 340 + tax

    4. canon 400d body only new, case battery and charger 349 + tax

    well is the 400 worth the extra 50 bucks? or are these prices too good to be true?

    also i plan on using my canon zoom 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 from my rebel G. or should i should i think about getting one of the 18-55mm lenses. i think it's only about 100 bucks more.

    Thanks

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Yes. The lowest price on the internet usually is. Check out this site and look up the name of the stores you are looking at.
    Check out B&H and Adorama...those are about the best real prices you will find...and they are reputable stores.

    An extra $50...I'd say yes...but it's probably more than that, at a reputable store.

    I would suggest getting the 18-55 lens with the camera. With many of the digital SLR cameras...there is a 'crop factor' which essentially makes the lenses feel like they are longer than they do on 35mm film SLR cameras. With this camera, it's a factor of 1.6...so you 35-80mm would feel like a 56-128mm. That's not a very wide view. The 18-55mm would be much more of a 'normal' view. For more info...just search for 'crop factor'.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.
