    i'd check around on ebay and B&H's used stuff, new SLRs are well above $500, for a body alone... and a Nikon SLR is out of the question on your budget, used or not.
    but an inexpensive and surprisingly nice SLR is that Olympus E-10.
    the only thing that sucks is that you can't swap lenses... as in the lens is permanently mounted. which really sucks. i saw some used on B&H a little while back, around $350.

    the eos20d last i looked was around 1000 for the body, where as the rebel xt elite (350d across the seassss) was around 500 for the body, but 500 bucks, you wont be able to get much...just save up and shoot 35mm for now...

    The X350 (new rebel) has most of the features of the 20D. I haven't had my hands on either yet, I don't want to make my SD9 feel rejected until I have enough money for a new one.

    I'm shooting for one too, sometime within the next 6 months if Sigma doesn't come out with anything. I'll probably keep the SD9 but I need something with low light performance that doesn't blow ass for the indoor shots which people are requesting I take more and more lately.

    The Nikon D70 is cool. I'm sure right now they have a rebate that makes it 999.99 including 18-70mm lens.
    I'd imagine that the price will be dropping soon to make room for the new and improved D70-S

    Save up like, 400 more dollars and get a Digi Rebel XT. Probably the most bang for your buck. You can probably find the original Rebel for aroud 600 or so..

    Read fredmiranda.com. Lots of good info.

    I've been trying to figure out what I'm going to get for the past few weeks. It was between the D70, 20D and 350D. I chose the 350D... so, I guess I'll see how well it works out when I get it on Sunday..
