Where to get discounted DSLR's?
I'm looking to get a DSLR camera for Christmas. More specifically a Canon T2i or Sony A35. However, I can't seem to find anywhere that offers any really good discounts.

Do any of you have any ideas of where them best place to get one would be? Ive already looked at Costco and Sam's to no avail. Any help would be great. Thanks!

If you think you're going to be serious about shooting, spend your 75%+ of your money on glass. Consumer grade bodies are disposable, but good glass holds its value and is far more important than a body in terms of image quality.
Craigslist is a pretty solid source.

Buy used on craigslist most "discount" camera sites are a scam.

I'm looking at the T2i as well. I'm thinking of going with the Costco combo.

It's actually come down another $50 after Black Friday.

I highly recommend stepping up to the Canon 60D. I got it with the 18-200 lens. I love this setup!

Its a great combo. One very good lens is better than two OK lenses. No lense juggling.

I saw this combo at Costco two weeks ago for $1250.

Thanks for the input. I'll keep looking at Costco I'll also take a look at the 60D.

If you have a Fry's in your area check their ad every Friday. I got my T1i there a year or so ago for $399 with kit lens. I've seen the 60D come up over the last few weeks.

Interesting review of the ti3 vs the 60D.

Here's a deal on a T2i:

Costco.com has the D60.

I don't have experience with many cameras but a friend of mine handed me their D5100 and I was shocked at what a POS "toy" it was compared to my D60.
