I am looking for a Digital Rebel Xt (preferably with a 17-85EFS Lens kit not the standard kit).

Cheapest I've seen was $1200CAD ($1099US) on Ebay for the camera + lens (and the lens alone is going for $606 on ebay) so I imagine this is a decent price.

This will be a big purchase for me so I would like to know of any other places I should check for lower prices before purchasing this.

henry's the 30d and 17-85 lens comes to $2249 CAD whereas,

ebay store has same one for $1883 CAD.

They look identical, plus the one on ebay is from a store and not an individual. Am I missing something?? There is a ~$400 difference here.

Can someone tell why I should not purchase the one on ebay over henry's??

Fees, duties, taxes, return policy, warranty, etc...

For something so valuable, it may be worth not taking a risk buying it from a US store (or you could take a drive to your closest US city and check prices there and bring it over yourself)
