    I've been looking at DSLR's for a while and thinking I'd wait for the 350D to come out and see if the 20d dropped in price.
    Jessops have the 350d for £800 with lens...so I looked at ebuyer. They had it for £100 less. While I was there I looked at the 20d again -out of stock. Then I saw the link to 'buy used' for £620 with lens ... stock=1 .thats well below ebay prices.
    So I went for it :eek:
    The gamble is of course ebuyer. If it turns up in an abused state and I have to return it I am in for enote hell. The other gamble is that may decide they do not have it after all.
    Fingers and toes crossed.

    Hasn't gone through yet but showing as in progress.
    Now I get the same problems others here have - choosing lenses.
    Found this lens review site. Seems like the supplied lens could not be any worse! (performance surveys - Canon EOS - browse lens database - start query)
    If it really is that bad it will soon find its way to ebay.

    Think I'd better save the research until I know the camera is OK :)

    Now confirmed for delivery Weds.
    Expecting the worst and hoping for the best. Ebuyer and used goods does not fill me with confidence. :(
