it was 2199 with this lens in the kit. they also had the other kit for 1899. I wanted to make sure it arrived as advertised today before i posted, figured a few people would be happy to snag one of these early.
Ripster101: thank you, thank you, thank you. I had pre-orders in with Amazon and Adorama and thanks to your tip about cameralandny.com having the 7D with the 18-135 lens mine is shipping out today! $2199.99. I asked about the 28-135 package for $1899, but Joel said they didn't have them and "why would anybody want that?" Okay. I also bought the extra battery, UV filter, and hood, but he charged me $99 instead of $70. Maybe you can share your secrets on getting deals someday. Again, thanks. I'll be able to play with it this weekend.
