Re: Price math question
Hey orlord, Unfortunately since Dell only sells there products over the internet, and Best Buy™ price match policy is that we only price match BestBuy.com and no other websites, we would not be able to price match their price on this camera. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

I have the canon 70 -300 sitting right here beside me on my XTi, it also fits my XSi and all my EOS mount film bodies. one thing about canon EOS lenses and bodies: They fit and work together. Yes there are cheaper lenses, but I just answered another question on this website from somebody who has a 3rd party lens (and a high quality lens ta-boot) that will not work on his canon. This is typical of canon. They do not release all of their codes to 3rd party manufactures. Your friend just bought a premium camera, do not let him put a lesser lens on the camera, he will not be happy and the savings will not be that significant to make up the difference...
If you are new to photography in general and especially SLR photography
I would suggest holding off on buying any lenses besides the 18-55mm.
The reason I suggest not buying extra lenses just yet is coz you need
to get to know your camera and if you are new to SLR photography then
you need to get your fundamentals right. Sure the 400D will let you
shoot in full auto mode but you will really not learn much doing that
and certainly not be making the most of your camera in that process and
that will extend to your new lenses too.
Get used the the control, the 18-55 is a great little cheap lens with
the pop up flash it will work great for most family pics. The 55-200mm
is a new "cheap" lens, its been marketed as letting you go beyond 55mm
thats why it starts at 55mm goes to 200mm.
Yes our Best Buy™ stores will price match, but the store we're price matching has to be in the local area of the Best Buy™ store that is doing the price match, and the competitor has to have the product in stock, and the product can't be on clearance.
Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.
