    wtf?

    this is from a local joint that usually SUCKS for pricing.

    B&H wants $1450 (after rebate) for the 40D + 17-85 ... then $550 for the 70-300.

    how could my local joint be that much cheaper? that's honestly never happened before.


    (buddy just had a baby & wants a nice camera. I told him XSi or 40D)

    Granted, the other shit is only worth maybe $100 ($40 battery, $10 card, $50 bag), but still ... B&H is already at $2000 with the body & two lenses.

    i would agree, but there's a slight price difference between the two.
