    I would agree with the previous post, except for one factor. The Rebel 2000 uses battery power to wind the film, so batteries tend to be used up quite quickly.

    Matt, the Yashica T3 which makes 60 135/24 rolls half of them with flash also has an electric winder/rewinder. I really am amazed at how long those batteries can last.

    For the Rebel 2000, Canon says 24 rolls with 50% flash use (24 exposure rolls at 20C).

    I expect the EF lenses use a fair bit of battery powers.

    Try the local electronics wholesaler if there is one near you.

    The big one in the GTA is a chain called Sayal. They often sell batteries for half or less of thier retail price. the are sold in a plastic zip bag, uncarded and unbranded.

    I have also bought cards of alkaline watch batteries there - each has 5 batteries of 10 different kinds for $5. It keeps watches, digital thermometers, pH meters, light meters (bridged kinds), etc in service. If they don't last as long as the $2.5 per cell varierty, I am still happy.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Batteries can be quite cheap on eBay, especially from Asian sellers. I buy from them regularly and never had a problem (except slow shipping at times).

    As for Canon Rebels -- they may be good but I run from them. I can't give 'em away.
