Best time to buy a DSLR? Sales?
You can check out the website pricegrabber.com for the camera prices offered by various retailers. Invariably, you would see that bestpriceelectronics is currently giving the best deals. But you can always choose a retailer based on the retailer ratings that pricegrabber also gives. I recently purchased from bpe at a very good price a bundled DSLR kit and the whole process went very smoothly.
