I would not go with a used one. I wouldn't pay that much money for something that I was unsure of. Atleast with a new one,you have the warranty from Canon. When I bought my XSi ... they sent me a refurbished one. I sent it back and they mailed me a new one. I have one rule about buying something ... if it is anything electronical .. buy new.
With the XSi,you can look through the LCD screen to take pictures. It has that option. I personally have never used it but I know that it is there
I also got mine off of an ebay store. It came with LOTS of things. I really liked the deal that I got,filters,a backup battery,bag(which I don't use),tripod and an extra lens and I paid around $700.00 for it .. it was a steal. Plus a 8GB card.
