Buy the time you get it into Australia including postage, customs and gst (just camera and gst is about $1320) you might be better off looking here in Aus. Mind you looking here http://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.co...egory158_1.htm you might still be on a bargin. Depends on what they sting you for freight.

But if your dead set on getting one from OS then if you can go the distance, how about this one. Its not the 20Da but for the price it looks like it would be worth it. Mind you it doesn't have the extra lens or printer. Plus don't forget you'll need to get at least a 512meg flash card at around $100

BTw do you get the rebates before or after it leaves the states. The GST component will be a bit more if its after you get it into the country.

I think what Pauls trying to say is for Tom to move to Australia then buy the camera from the states then Paul's reply post will make sence.

Sorry Paul...I have to play on this a little more.

Looks like a good buy Tom...if you happen to live in the states....lol

Try these guys: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...ughType=search
US$715 after rebate for Canon XT (350D) body only. There's various kits available as well.
I've bought a few things off these guys and they're cheap, fast and reliable from my experience.
