Default Canon Digit Rebel or Canon 300D digital rebel, the same?

I am in the process of getting the digital rebel. I was about to order one at a online store that had the 300D model rebel for $789.00 for the kit. Before I purchased it I went to E-Bay. There was a dealer who said there are two different models, one is the digital rebel a USA market model and a 300D digital rebel a overseas or earlier model. Are there two different Rebels out there and the Company that has the great deal is AMPHOTOWORLD.COM.
Has any one had any dealings with this firm. I do not want to throw money away on seconds.

Thanks for any help or advise

The cheaper ones do not include a lens. Which is ok if you already have better ones or want a better one. I ended up ordering from butterflyphoto.com . They have an 8.25 or so rating. Not perfect but at least trustable. I ordered the kit for $1299 that included:

CANON EOS 300D DIGITAL REBEL WITH 18-55MM EF-S LENS
512 MB COMPACT FLASH CARD
HIGH POWER BP-511 LITHIUM ION BATTERY
AC/DC RAPID BATTERY CHARGER SET
UV: FILTER PROTECTS YOUR CAMERA'S LENS FROM SCRATCHES.
USB COMPACT FLASH READER
DELUXE MEDIUM / LARGE SIZE CASE
FREE 2 DAY AIR SHIIPING WITH THIS KIT

Damn, I did a search on "am photo world" and didn't find it. Thanks for doing a better search.... I commented on this in your other copy of this tread, and I guess I was right. Stay away.

Default Same Camera, different markets

The Digital Rebel is the USA market for this camera. The 300D is for Europe. In Japan it is known as the KISS I believe. Be very careful when ordering from on-line stores. Be sure that your camera has a USA warranty and not an 'International warranty' because Canon USA won't service it if it does not have the USA warranty. I would suspect that the 300D you were looking at is what is called a 'grey market' camera meaining it is being sold in the US with an International Warranty.
