Canon DSLR Market: The Price Charts (a snapshot)

We started this new series yesterday with the Nikon mount price chart and we continue today with the Canon mount, which at the moment consists only of Canon DSLRs. Please note that for the purposes of this exercise we are only looking at the standard kits, and we do not include any special bundles individual retailers create.

Footnotes
1) The "Amazon (3rd party)" category shows the lowest price among reputable and recognizable 3rd party sellers at Amazon.

2) For the purposes of this feature we are only looking at the standard kits. A number of retailers also create special bundles, but it becomes very difficult to have an apples and oranges comparison so they are not included. If the standard kit is not available we mark it as "n/a".

3) The prices are snapshots, they are not statistical averages.

4) There may be typos or errors in this post. Please don't panic :)

5) "n/a" means not available as a standard kit. It may be available in special bundles. "refurb" stands for refurbished.

6) For silver/black Canon models, the lowest price is shown. We did not want to further complicate the table by differentiating between silver and black Digital Rebels.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. The Sony-Minolta-Alpha mount will be posted tomorrow, and the Pentax/K-mount and Four-Thirds coming later on.
