Hey Guys, please guide me as im so much confused that shd i go for above option or not.. The camera is in working condition, but very roughly used, body condition is 4.5-5.0/10 i guess.. Price offer is 820 USD as the seller needs the money.. My range of spending is under 800 USD in wich i was planning to buy Canon 550D with kit lense + 50mm 1.8 or Canon 600D with kity lense or i had the option in mind for slightly used D90 body only as i already have Nikkor.

So please tell me is it worth spending ??

I am seeing "mint" used with less that 10,000 shutter count going for 1100-1350.

I guess it comes down to how bad you want it and how realistic it is to save up for one in better condition.

Personally - I wouldn't do it.

When you say the body is in only 4.5 condition, are you speaking of only cosmetic flaws? I think you should be very wary of this camera because unless you have some assurance that it is mechanically and electronically perfect, don't buy it. I don't see how the delecate mechanicals and electronics would still be perfect if the body has been abused.

I just bought a new 7D for my wife, that was a retail box kit, with the (junk) kit lens removed for $1200. I wouldnt think that would be any too cheap, especially if you dont know for sure just how rough it was treated and if there could be damage beyond cosmetic.
