Using Amazon credit with a 12 month plan.

I got the kit with the 24-105mm f4.

My goal is to pay it back in under 3 months since I'll be able to sell my old camera and crop-sensor lenses once it comes.

I'm so happy :D

Congrats, but time will literally stand still as you wait for that big, brown truck to pull into the driveway.

is the 24-105mm worth keeping? Do any of you know if IS helps a lot for video? I've got primes covering the range... but maybe having everything covered in a single lens would be worth keeping for traveling.

I don't shoot video with my DSLRs... But I believe IS will work, but will produce noise that will be recorded if using the camera's internal mike for sound. Maybe use an external mike?

Have fun learning the new camera!
