Hi all, new member here. I was wondering if there's any way for a US resident like myself to order a KISS Digital online. Superficial or not, I prefer the black look of the KISS. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks to anyone who can help out!

For what you'd have to go through just to get the thing orderedand what you might have to pay extra in shipping and tarriffs you'd probably be better off just going ahead and buying the 10D if you want a black body.

For real. Also there is a LOT of chatter of Canon going to annouce a replacement for the 10D. With Photokina coming up AND the Olympics, an announcement should be made sometime in the next month. Dealers are saying they are no longer able to order the 10D. In addition, I noticed a few weeks ago, on the Canon EOS site, they removed the NEW designation from their cameras that had it. All this show that an annoucement is pretty soon.

Ok, now that I've run the rumor mill... seriously, several of the Authorized Canon dealers have lowered prices on the 10D. Once an annoucement is made, the price of the 10D will probably drop more.

It the prices are too high, you should be able to find a good used D60 or a 10D.

Having a dRebel at work though, the advantage of the Kiss is that its lens in the kit has an Ultrasonic Moter (quiter and faster focus). However, by the time you pay taxes on it, you'd be better off with any of the recommendations above. Personally I'm waiting to see what the new camera will be (10DmkII, 20D, 3D,???).

I read somewhere that the Kiss only comes with a Japanese menu system. I could be wrong...but if true...hope you know the language before you buy one.
