Was yours a refurb? They are running $399 right now new for the body only.
yes. It was a heck of a deal, body, 18-55 STM, and 75-300, for $289
I sold the 75-300 for 80 bucks, and my old XSi and it's 18-55 USM II for $200
seems like late July/August is the good time Canon makes better deals

That's exactly my thinking... I have the 6D but would like something smaller.
Just bought a used SL1 body and 24mm pancake off ebay.
I wonder how the ergonomics will be. Lack of top display and many of the control buttons should take a little while to get used to.
having the XSi i was use to using the much smaller camera. I adjust exposure settings through the viewfinder anyway, so the missing top screen is no big deal. The SL1 has a touch screen, so that is big improvement in making adjustments over my older camera and makes the interface easy to adjust to, except that you have to look at the screen for anything other than exposure.
just having the smaller body in hand is enough to subconsciously cue my mind/hand that I need to do something different. It really is tiny in comparison so I have not had a problem going back and forth. That said, there hasn't been a whole lot of back and forth, I probably don't have a thousand clicks on the SL1 yet LOL
