i don't know what you can find for that price since you also have to buy a lens. i am anning on buying the canon EOS 40D which is awesome and also easy to use if you're not a total pro. if i can still find it that is. i think they're pushing the 50D as a replacement but thar's an excellent camera too.
nikon is good too and i know some people swear by them but personally i find canons much more intuitive and user friendly.
