[roll eyes]... seriously... this type of question always come up before comex... and our answer is always - NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

You will get a more expensive camera with lots of useless freebies and stuff like that.

Go to the recommended shops for your cameras (email them, call them, pay them a visit and ask for quotation).

And... please, please, please, check out other brands and format of cameras too... don't limit yourself to Canon.

Comex, Sitex and whatever ..ex is never the cheapest option. The cheapest options are in town in the camera shops, all year round.

Look around in the threads, see if a Dslr something you really need an want. If so, then get it at the normal stores. Prices at IT shows are priced quite a bit higher than at the normal stores.

For a gauge of prices, you can check out the price guide section in the forum.

Why not you call one of the CS-preferred shops and ask them for their best prices for 550D? Then do your comparison with the Comex pricing ;)

Search for forum for any of the names of such shows.. just read. Since these trade shows happen more thna once per year you'll easily find the threads. Do a bit of homework, it's your money. Unless you have no issues wasting it ... in this case just go and buy wherever you find the cam.
