I asked about prices at the end. One guy was a bit shocked at the price that you found, but the next guy said that they would come close to matching it (slightly more, but including a card)! I'm not sure that I'll buy the 100D, but it sets a pretty nice benchmark!
I'm missing not having the camera a bit now.. even though I didnt get the chance to take it out any where. Coming from a Fuji 602, the image quality is amazing.
For the price I dont think you'll get a better DSLR, the Shake Reduction is very impressive... you'll see my handheld ISO 400, Mirror lens (500mm lens , 750mm equivelant on the K100) shot above - the two starlings. The small sparrow was ISO 800 though (I think)
