What do you consider to be "good"?

~Anywhere from $1,000-$1,350 for the body only. Ritz has it for $1,350 and I guess I sort of want to see if I can get lower. Is it really worth getting it with the kit lens?~

You can get it for $1249 at www.buydig.comand B&H has it for $1330.

Personally I'd go with B&H or a local shop for a camera body. BuyDig is supposed to be very reputable though, so you may want to check them out.

Before you buy anything online, check the stores ratings at www.reselleratings.com If the store doesn't score at least an 8 for "Likelihood of Future Purchases" and have a lifetime rating over an 8 (with several hundred reviews) I'd stay away from them.

It would seem the price also includes a whole load of grief .

Likelihood of future purchases.........ZERO

Lifetime rating...................................1.9

I only saw a handful, a very small handful of satisfied reviews. Anyone considering them should check here, as already suggested. http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1895.html

It would be great if people would remember what their mom probably told them when they were young ... "If it sounds to good to be true, IT IS".

I bought one camera from Royal many years ago and still regret it to this day.

Shop at B & H Photo Video.

Prices are competitive, service and support excellent.
