Hi and welcome to Clubsnap!! Enjoy your stay here... it's safer here xD

Anyways, I'm guessing that this will be your first DSLR yeah? Since dslrs can change lenses, you have a few options:

1) Get the 400D body and other lenses individually (Best option as you can choose what lens / lenses you want to start with. Most expensive option though as you'll be buying the items individually)

2) Get the 400D Kit 1 or Kit 2 (EF-S 18-55mm & EF-S 17-85mm respectively. This is the path that most beginners take)

3) Wait for the 450D to be released, and then take either option 1 or 2 with the benefit of slashed new prices for the 400D.

For now, here are some shops and quotes for the 400D body alone.

Canon EOS 400D Body
03/03/07 - Cathay Photo - S$1,170 (new, EF Lens Work III, 2GB Sandisk Ultra II CF)
03/04/07 - M S Color - S$1,200 nett
10/06/07 - Alan Photo - S$1,197 (new, 2GB Sandisk Ultra II CF, EF Lens Work III, 20 DVD+R)
14/06/07 - Parisilk - $1,114 (new, 2GB Sandisk Ultra II CF, free camera bag)
I suggest you get the 400D from Cathay Photo (Peninsular Plaza / Marina Square) or MS Color (AMK Hub / AMK blk 711)

If you have any questions about the 400D, feel free to contact me =)

You have a full qwerty keyboard and you're not limited by SMS 160 characters, right? Please stop butchering words like that, it makes your posts hard to read.

As for your question, have you bothered to do any research, or are you just asking to be spoonfed? Did you search the forum or even Google?
