Based on forum's B&S section, I reckon you can't let it go for any higher than 100 bucks - better off keeping it unless you wanna fund it for the 50mm f/1.8 II. Good luck.

Will it be worth it if I buy a IS lens for 18-55mm for 1.6x crop?

Also, how much is a 350D body only worth?

Definetly.

350D should cost you between $350-$500 now.

How about having the option of a 400D in the list as well. I saw some selling with complete kits and items, plus low shutter counts. Some even had about 1-2 months warranty left. Wouldn't that be a good deal? You can bargain with the seller as well, because you're buying it as a kit. Not just the body.

That is expensive and no zoom isn't it?

Sorry guys, had been using S2 IS then S5 IS all the while years back, I know nuts about DSLR and lenses.
Is there a huge impact on 17-55mm non IS vs 15-55mm IS?
How much is 17-55mm cost for 2nd hand??

No more than $50. I guess everybody will just sell at 50, so don't bother bargaining. Just make sure you check the lens properly. And best to have free UV filter etc.

The UV filter would cost about S$10 already... so S$40/- for a lens.... quite worth it (even cheaper than a Raynox Filter... :bsmilie:)

just to share, most of the most expensive lenses are the ones that cannot zoom.

you'll soon realise that the 50mm f/1.8 II is the MOST affordable prime lens available in the Canon lens lineup.

50mm x 1.6 = 80mm, the 50mm lens you are talking about is fixed focal length not a zoom lens...

The 1.6x is the crop factor from the camera & not the lens... if you attach the lens to a 5D or 1D, it would still be 50mm. :)
