you may want to research the stores on ebay, not very many of them have very good reputations. Check out B&H as well

Here's a site to research stores

No. I'm saying that the Canon XSiis better at some things than the Sony A350is, but I don't think those things will affect you. I'm also saying that the Sony A350 is better at some things than the Canon XSi is, and I think those things will help you.

Sony fixes prices. If you find a new Sony A350 body with a US warranty for less than $599.99, it's a scam.

And, again, the lenses you have will work, and there aren't any lenses bundled with Sony dSLRs that are better than what you have.

Sony A350 is $600 (body only) and $700 with a kit lens from B&H
Sony 50mm f/1.4 -$ 350 also from B&H or check second hand Minolta lenses.

Go to Abe's of Maine for a lower price on the Sony A350 body only. $539.

Butterfly Photo also has it for a low price.

As TCav previously stated:



"Sony fixes prices. If you find a new Sony A350 body with a US warranty for less than $599.99, it's a scam."





Abe's is a classic example of loose and goosey.

Abe's is also known as Cameras and Electronics.com, Family Photo and Video.com andFamily Cameras.com.

From the mid to 80's until 2007 Abe's was located in Brooklyn

The new store (in New Jersey) is a big improvement over the old store:

http://donwiss.com/pictures/OtherStores/h0015.htm

Inspite of the snazzy digs,resellerratings is less than stellar:

http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Abe_s_of_Maine



Butterfly Photo is even lower on the reliability totem pole with seemingly dozens of different names and variants.

For a number of years Butterfly operated froma "nice" warehouse:

There new warehouse:

http://donwiss.com/pictures/OtherStores/h0016.htm

The name of the parent company of Butterfly is Accoona Corp. Accoona Corp

According to Shedding Some Light

"

Accoona Corporation, according to its website, is partially owned by "China Daily Information Company (CDIC), an official Chinese Government Agency, and www.ChinaDaily.com.cn, the official and largest English language Web destination in China."

It quotes a Chinese official whose "department will support Accoona Corp. efforts to promote Chinese Enterprises to do business with companies throughout the World".


"

Shedding some light also references the possibility of Butterfly being related to the Broadway family of slime.
