Good price. Good camera but pretty dated. Personally, I don't think I would be happy with anything older than a 30D, but that's because I still have one. If I had nothing yet, I would probably stick with a 40D or newer due to better weather sealing, faster fps, better menus, etc. One really nice thing about having a newer camera as a backup is the battery is the same. Not a big deal but still nice. 60D (fairly inexpensive compared to other newer bodies) + some other newer main body gets you the new battery design.
