I don't know if any of you know it or if it has been mentioned already, but Best Buy is now carrying the 300D. Saw one today at my local Best Buy along with a 10D. And I live in a relatively small town compared to the much larger markets. It's going for $999 in the store and online. The shipping is free if ordered online. So for those who like to pick up and handle a camera before buying, you can check it out there. That's $100.00 over the earlier stated price, and you might be able to get it for less at the large mail order companies. But if you have a BB store near you, you can do a look/see there. FWIW.
