    Same with the D40 and the Canon 400D. Plus, there are many reasons for selling a cam, such as financial problems.

    It happen on all system too. Some may buy it to try it, and finally they found it is not mean for them, and sell it.

    Perhaps an attachment with my previous statement would be better. Taken at Alpha Launch.

    i went through the stuffs sold from the buy/sell camera threads and i think D70s is really out of my budget... is there a big diff b/w d70 and d70s because the former seems to be sold at a cheaper price (2nd hand) than the latter..

    i'm leaning more towards 350d/10D or D50 now... how is d50 compared to 350d?

    and another thing, (ok this might sound noob-ish but pls bear with me LOL) how long does a dSLR normally last? I know it's kind of a subjective question but say if I were to get a 2 and 1/2 year old D10, I wouldn't want it to just last a year and then start to spoil. hahaha..

    thanks for the feedback guys!

    Nah, the lack of stock might mean a replacment is coming soon? Anyway, get the Canon 350D or 400D, you won't regret it.

    Look here for the rough estimate of prices and the shops that you may want to call up to enquire. Saves a bit of leg work going from shop to shop.

    If you are able to shop online, you can buy the Pentax K110D with kit lens around US$450 new with warranty. Even factoring in GST and shipping, that works out to about S$800!
