so good friday i check b&h and newegg. the canon xs kit is selling for 505. but i balk, knowing there has to be a new body announcement soon (plus b&h wasnt processing orders over easter/passover).

i look today and its now 525.

Butterfly Photo has it for $497.

I use B&H a lot of the time, but I also use Adorama, Abes', Buydig, JR Musicworld, Tristate, 42nd Street, and a host of other highly ranked internet outlets. On my last purchase, I bought the camera at Adorama, a lens at Buydig and the second lens at JR. All free shipping, all +/- $50 savings relative to each other.

Use Pricegrabber.com or Nextag.com and shop, prices vary across these sites on a weekly basis.

2 Things.

1.) Always put the item you are looking at in the cart at B & H, especially Nikon stuff. Retailers get rebates on products as long as the advertisied price is above a certain level. For instance, the D700 body shows up at $2.999.95 on the site but $2,399,95 when you put it in the cart.

2.) Both Canon & Nikon have raised prices this year as a result of the weakening Yen.

A lot of sites do that and usually make it pretty obvious when that's the case - IIRC B&H is that way too. Never hurts to check though. Cameta has a store on ebay and amazon where they sell refurbs. Good deals and I can't remember hearing about any problems with them, including when I bought from them.

Lots of people with DSLR's, even entry level ones, think they have to have the latest. Buy last week's model.
thats whay im looking at the d60 and xs. i knew a few announcements should have been coming, so i waited, thinking prices on those two models would go down.

It's all the demand from loungers. Macs, hookers, blow, and beets are all going up in price as well.
