I think you must be in Canada seeing our canadian prices? Unfortunately we don't have many pricing sources in Canada, so often the prices look higher than they actually are. If you click the US flag on the top right you can switch and see US prices, we have the T2i available for $822 USD.

not sure where you are buying the T2i at but there is no way it costs almost 1,500 bucks. I just bought one ƒor half that price.

Temporary glitch with our pricing system. I've fixed this up. Thanks for the report.

Seems the link for the Nikon d7000 from amazon.com advertised at $87.95 is for a camera bag, not the camera.
