    Why has the 350D with kit lens just dropped so much in price?

    Under £500 now.

    Very tempted at that price.

    Or a D50 at under £400??

    Get the camera NOW!
    When you pass your driving test, you'll be looking at cars, and the four wheeled beasties will eat up all your £££.

    I may have to order one of these in a week or so and start building up my Canon stuff...although that might be a little pointless since I have *so* many lenses and accessories for my Minolta equipment!

    Woo! This is good news. Have admired the 350D for a while now, from a distance though. Still can't afford it but I will save up and make sure I get my summer job back and slave away to get this beauty. Just not sure whether to go for the 18-55 standard kit or the 18-55 and 55-200 double pack. My uncle goes to the motorbikes at Silverstone quite a bit, having gotten bored with F1 now. I spoke to him a while ago at a family reunion and mentioned maybe me getting a camera and taking some sports shots of the bikes to learn more about the camera.

    Probably would be better getting the 18-55 kit and getting the 70-200L though for motorsport photos though, eh?
