Basically that. I got a Sony A700 for $839 from Best Buy. They're not exactly all over the place (it was the 3rd Best Buy I called that had one) but if you can find a body only, it will be rather cheap for what is considered a semi-pro DSLR camera.

While this is very cheap, I don't recommend this to everyone. Certainly not to people who already have bought into their Canon/Nikon/Olympus/Pentax systems, since they're fine systems. And Sony has one of the weaker lens lineups, accentuated by the fact that Tokina doesn't make lenses for them either. But it's pretty good space for guys into the used lens trawling...

But if you've decided that the Sony system is good for you, that's an amazing price on a really great camera body with great image quality. I guess this means my A100 (my previous backup SLR body) will be going onto the marketplace here once I give it a clean bill of health...

If the guy at Best Buy helping says he can't find it, you might want to try your luck with the item number, which is: 8547021.
