    That's right, I did.

    A friend of mine bought a Rebel XT off a Canon distibuter for super cheap over the summer while he was working at a camera store. He always had the idea he would use it as a backup camera, but never really had the need for a backup camera. So for the past few months I've been borrowing it to shoot for the school newspaper, as well as anything else I want. I finally got around to asking him if I could buy it off him about a week ago, and today he sold it to me! WOOOOOOOO! Now I just need to get a memory card so I can give him his one back.

    So thats my good news for the day :)

    that is one hell of a deal.. congrats :)

    Now take all that cash that you saved and drop it on a NICE lens.. you will still be ahead of the game!

    Just think how much that camera and lens COULD have cost you! ;)

    Wow, great price. Having paid full pop for the same camera, I'm jealous. But am also happy for you.
