not a bad deal. the camera and lenses alone would probably cost you that, but the rest appears to be your basic after market accessories.

the SD card is a plus....especially at 16GB.

the 3 filter kit could be nice depending on the brand of the filters, but i'd guess that they're most likely a lower quality brand, but they still act as a great lens protector so that the lens itself doesn't get scratched up. also, you may want to check, but the filters will probably only fit the 18-55. i would highly recommend investing into a pouch to carry the filters in....especially one that will hold 6-8 so that you have room to add to it.

not a fan of either of the tripods. i just purchased a new tripod with a ball head that is 100 times easier to use than the standard pan head on the one included. in the time it took me to take 5 different pictures with a tripod like what's included, i can now take about 20 thanks to the ball head.

don't really understand the hard case. it would probably hold the lenses (tight fit most likely), but i don't think it would hold the body very well. i'm assuming for it to hold the lenses or body, you'd have to cut the foam to fit.

not a fan of the soft case either.....or at least not to carry everything. it looks like it has just enough room to cram most of the equipment in, but as soon as you buy another accessory, you'll find yourself picking and choosing what you want to carry or buying a larger bag. if you get a new bag, look for one that has a place to carry a tripod so that you don't find yourself carrying that as well. i've found that the more functionality, the better.

oh and i'm a canon person. :P

If you really need all those lenses, it's a good buy. I got the same body with an 18-55 VR and a 55-200 VR lens for $700.00, and that included a bag and a ton of accessories. I would shop around a bit if you don't absolutely need all of the lenses.

Frankly, for my use and for the same money, I'd get a better camera and fewer lenses and accessories.

see my sig burl....all the pics you need. ^_^

indeed. and very good ones at that.

BTW, my site is down until I get some higher quality pics of my stuff. they were having difficulty getting high quality images with larger sizes and since first impressions are important, I want the buyer to not have to go through any hassle. In case you have visited and wonder whats up.

I won't link it here because of the mess that's gone on here. But as soon as I have the pics right I'll be back.
