Got it Monday 11-8-2004 used (8,000 shutter actuations) w/18-55 lens & box contents at Fred Miranda for only $565--a KILLER price at that time. (We sold the Nikon 5400--which we had gotten by selling our laptop--to get the Canon DR.) Now the "fancy" Nikon 5700 became the "other" camera, the one Jenifer used on photography outings--or that we both used for "everyday" stuff.
Below the photos are further divided by the lenses used on the 300D. The whole time I owned it, I nonetheless tried a few times to sell it and get a Nikon D70 but never pulled the trigger; usually a $300 "upgrade gap" existed and it would've been used-for-used. On Sept 13th 2005 I did pull the trigger when got a great deal on a Nikon D50 (a model a lot like the D70) which made the "upgrade gap" only $100 (and it was used-for-new, too). I don't regret shooting with the 300D, it did me well when I owned it.
