FYI, for those interested in refurbed Rebels there has been a price drop during Canon's newest sale.
T1i= $245, $286 w/18-55 is ii
T2i= $307, $358 w/18-55 is ii
T3i= $383, $447 w/18-55 is ii
T3= $351 w/18-55 is ii
If you buy a body or body+kit lens, you get half off refurbished 55-250 is, 75-300 f4-5.6 III or 18-135 is.
The refurbed rebel prices are marked down 20% just like the CLP for this sale, so that makes me wonder if the CLP now has these listed in the sale as their fixed prices for the holiday season.
***Oh, and Canon is also running a free ground shipping promo with this (over $100 and it is free)
