Why?
spend another $200 and get a refurbished "new" DSLR with better image quality, better ISO performance, improved AF, more focus points, better exposure metering, Hi Def video capability ......

I know, I'm kinda on the fence here. Whether or not I wanna spend more money and get something new, or just settle for used, because this is my first DSLR.

if this is your first DSLR get a newer model. Do a search here on "Canon Loyalty program"
it won't cost you much more

Trust me,

Spend more, get more out of it. Why buy a camera where you'll soon grow out of the learning curve and then look for upgrading then again?

So you would reccomend the Rebel XS that I can get for $320 from the Loyalty Program?

keep looking!
look at the newer T2i (550D) and the Canon loyalty program. The increased FPS rate is worth it but you get much more

Yeah. I've bought a few items in bargain grade and they are a little rough along the edges but they work. If there are any problems with them, they will work with you to make you happy.

If you buy used,even refurbished,you might be buying someone else's problems.
Camera's are so precise, I wouldn't trust anything but new.

You can usually buy a refurb and an extended 3 year warranty from Adorama and still save money. That's what I did with my 7D. Very Happy!

Happy Shopping!
