If you're of buying a Digital Rebel, there's a nice rebate (http://consumer.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/slr/CIWC101504.pdf) available now. It's normally $100 off but if you buy a lens or two the rebate can double or triple! For example, if you buy the Rebel + the popular 28-135mm lens you get $200 off the camera and $30 off the lens.

I've got no vested interest in this (aside from asking you to use PriceGrabber (http://dcresource.pricegrabber.com) for price shopping) but wanted to mention it!

Do you think that this rebate means that Canon is clearing out the 300D channel for an updated version of the 300D? I assuming not because most upcoming products have been announced, but enticing rebates like this are often a sign of a new model in the computer and Digicam worlds.

Well, there certainly won't be any announcement until next year...

Lets see bought Rebel with 18-55 lens at walmart $829.00
Bought 70-300 lens also at walmart $248 (yeah I know that was a bit high)
Just bought 28-135 IS USM for $420.00 and 550EX flash for $335.00 at dell.com (the coupon says there isn't a rebate on the flash but I'm thinking there really is---as I've seen a few notations that there is one).

Total rebate will be like 390.00 so I got like one a half lenses for free, or you could say I got the body for 400 bucks, cheaper than a comparable p&s like a G6 and the lenses will carry over for when the 20D becomes reasonable because it's old technology. Now I just have to pay off the plastic........ :p
