Today I picked up a 30D with the 28-135 USM IS lens for $175. Pictures taken look good. Did I get a decent deal? Going to use it as a back up.

I paid around 1200 for my 30d with a kit lens back when they were first introduced.

You did well.

I recently purchased a 28-135 in very good condition for $200. I think you got a nice deal, as long as everything checks out OK. Enjoy it.

Thats a superb deal as long as everything functions correctly. My 30D many years ago was a great camera.

Used, that lens usually sells for about that price (I was just looking in to picking one up locally), so it's like getting the 30D for free.

Looks good! I loved my 30D and still wouldn't mind getting another. Nice score!

I just cleaned my 40D's sensor. It looked about that bad. Now it looks pretty good even at the high apertures. Ordered the wet kit with swabs, cloths and cleaner for a few bucks on Amazon.

lol!! Could be, but I had just picked up the camera and didn't take a close look at the UV filter they had on the lens --- it was filthy!!!

Going to clean up the filter -- lens was clean, and take some new pics. Then we'll see how the sensor looks.

Try shooting without the UV filter. If you didn't get it with the camera and lens, get the lens hood.

Dust and dirt on the filter (or directly on the lens elements or inside the lens) won't show in your images, the way sensor dust does. So - based upon your image - you need to do a sensor cleaning.

You got a great deal!

I'd say you got a good deal. For a kit lens, the 28-135 isn't half bad.
