the 20 and 30d are going to be more sturdy than the xti. try craigslist, but be careful. you can find a great bargins on CL but also get ripped off. I buy all of my cameras used. I buy my most of my lenses new. in fact if you would like for me to keep my eye out on the professional forums I belong to, I will. I bought the tamron 28-75, and sold it, I hated how slow it focused. I like your thinking with going with prime lenses.. you will love em.
Yes, if anyone sees a used 20D, 30D or XTi for sale I'd be interested. I'll scan craigslist too. I have seen posts of people selling 20D & 30Ds because the got the new 40D, but they were already sold. But, I imagine if I look around more I'll find something from a source I can trust.
Is the main benefit of the 20/30D the sturdiness? I am a little concerned about it being heavier than I want once I put the camera & a bunch of lenses in a bag. I don't want to feel weighed down while hiking or on a vacation. We walk a lot on vacation usually. Mike is usually my packhorse for most things, but I always carry my own camera because I'm constantly pulling it out. My little Canon SD is great on vacation so I don't want to get so heavy that I opt to take the SD instead. Even my purse strap starts to hurt after a long day.
