    not sure whether is it still possible to find a new 40D without buying from black shop. i think you can look at 50D instead.

    you can email to some of the more popular stores to see what they can offer. i cant remember the pricing for the 50D. i think its abt 1.6k for the camera body alone.

    You can call the few reputed ones like John 3.16, SLR revo, Cathay, etc... Price for 50D with kit should be under 2k.

    You may want to get the 50D kit and a flash since you are covering events as well.

    Get the Canon EX580II if you can include that in your budget. Sorry, I'm not a Canon user, so I'm not sure what's the price for that. You may want to refer to the price list in the forum.

    50D + EF-S 18-55 kit lens + 580 EXII, if all brand new, confirm plus chop.... >$2K... sorry to burst your bubble.
    If you get 50D + 17-40L + 580 EXII (since 50D is quite a 'pro' body, so it should be deserving of a more pro lens)... well... the price for that...
