Hello, I am new to this forum. I have the chance to get a D70 locally at Ritz (100 rebate etc.). I am really interested in the 20d, the folks at Ritz seem to guide me towards the Nikon. They only seem to stock the Nikon not the Canon which may be their motive. Here is my main question: Is it safe ( or a good idea ) to buy from the 'big' online discount camera shops. I saw a 20d package on eBay from priceritephoto.com, and it seemed to be a very good deal: $2149 for a 'kit' that came in various configs. A vertical grip, extra battery, Sigma EF-500 flash, bag, etc. Another kit came with a Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens which they say retailed in the $600 range? Are these price for real? The companies seem to be 'legit' outfits with retail storefronts. Or are these packages not worth it for some reason that my 'novice' status can't see. Please help me out, I am depending on the expertise from this forum.

Thanks in advance,
