I got my raise and bonus today. I went to Wal Mart and they have the XT pacakge for $860. So I put it on layaway.

This is all your fault and I will never forgive you.

I got my WalMart's last one.
Looks like they are sold out online too.
www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3626648


Screw Wal Mart. found it online for the same price but included is both the 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses.

I'd see if you can find a better deal with just the 18-555 lens and skip the 55-200. It's not a very good lens---even the 75-300 cheapo is better.

Screw all of them, just buy a 50 F1.8 lens and be happy with that!!!

Just make sure the online place has a decent reputation. Some are great, others not so much. You will enjoy the camera, I am sure!

Why buy a second rate digital camera?
Canon is way ahead in the digital world.



Uh... so I have the extra cash for hookers and blow?

I placed and order with them... they did the whole routine of calling me... asking me if I wanted to buy a battery and charger for the camera. They attempted to tell me that Canon cameras do not come with batteries or a charger and that I'd have to buy one from them at the tune of $135.

"Cancel my order now.. thanks for calling."

Rebel XT was just rated better than the D50 in Popular Photo and Imaging... I'd stick with the XT

Try Beach Camera. I just bought my cam from them, and they got 99% of good reviews throughout the intarweb.

That magazine makes some questionable statements at times. Such as the D2X having the best high ISO noise control (the D2Hs and Canon 1D series generally have better control). Or stating that the Rebel XT isn't a challenger to the 20D. I didn't realize that Canon competes against itself. Also not that the Rebel XT is about $300 more than the D50. A better and more fair comparison would be the D70. Even then, the D50 gives the XT a run for its money.
