Canon's having a one-day deal on the 70D EF-S 18-55mm IS STM Lens Kit Refurbished - for $836.36. Having been contemplating a new camera for some time to replace my T2i - this seemed like too good a deal to pass up.

So - I pulled the trigger . . . . Camera's on its way. :cool:

Congrats! I noticed that for just 8¢ less you could have gotten just the body...LOL!

Congratulations. Wish I was right there with you but I need a house to sell before I can spend anymore on photography. They must have had a glut of 18-55's as it was about $0.50 more to get it rather than just the 70D body only.

Congrats! You will appreciate the increase in build quality and the rear quick control wheel on the 70D, and you'll definitely enjoy the new 18-55 STM lens over the old kit lens. It's actually quite eerie how quiet and quickly the 18-55 stm (and the 55-250 stm) focus compared to the older IS and IS II versions. :)

Yes it is eerie.
The first couple times I played with it I thought the lens was broke because I didnt hear it get focus.

+1 on the touch and swivel screen. I thought both of these were gimmicks until I started using the camera. They are super usefull

I agree with nyc2sd, I thought the touch screen was just a marketing gimmick too but now that I've used my 70D for a few months I find it really useful.

My only complaint would be the raw files, they seem to not play well with any of the programs I have
