Love this forum, tons of information for a new photographer to soak his eyes in to. My birthday is coming up and I'm looking to get a 50D. Always loved photography, and now that Im out the the Navy, I have time to do it.
I found this deal on ebay (listing here), by pyxis_camera. When I went to order the camera, the guy on the phone told me they could upgrade the flash card to an 8GB 133x high speed compact flash card for $75.00. When I went to look up how much a normal 8GB 133x campact card I could find them for 40-50 dollars. I'm not saying their trying to rip me off, but it seemed a little odd.
Anyways, what do you guys think of the deal? I've read most of you say that a lot of package deals come with a lot of crap stuff along with it, but I've added up the price of their products and it's way over their asking price (1147.60). My biggest worry is getting a cheaper lens then they have up. Is it possible to send a cheaper version of the 18-55 lens? As in quality..
I'm also considering getting a 28-135 lens also for my birthday, looks like a good lens for a beginner. This a good lens for someone who's starting out?
Thanks again guys! Love the help!
