Note, these prises are without lens. The cheapest kit lens cost about
100$ shipped with the camera. Nikon's one is more expensive due to more
quality. Sony provides 3 kit zooms: 100$ 17-70, new 16-105 and Zeiss
16-80 (set in turn both of price and quality). Nikon and Canon have
several kits too.
Canon 5D main advantage is full frame. It is not cropped. So in features
it is weaker than 30D or 40D, but image quality is higher.
