    don't buy ebay packages...they look like a good deal, but end up being shit. that SD card is pure shit, you probably won't get a nikon battery, and everything else, well, isn't that great to begin with. Just trust us when we say don't do ebay packages.

    :rolleyes: yeah batteries, memory cards, a carry bag and a lense are pretty worthless.

    If a REFURBISHED body is $400, then SHOW me how I could get a battery, 2gb card AND a NIKON lense and a bag for $200. Please please please.

    lens $250 (28-80)
    card $50 (2gb)

    The thing you don't realize is that you won't find GOOD product for that price. You *should* spend the extra money on something you will use for a long period of time rather than low-end stuff that you'll regret buying initially.

    i'd be suprised if you get anything like what you see in that picture. Ebay packages like this have always been a scam and you end up getting second hand shit. If you like to fuck up semi-major purchases like this, go for it. I prefer to get quality stuff.

    Shop around... I picked up a mint condition Fuji S2 Pro for $650 this week. Good deals are out there, you just have to search. Check out Fred Miranda's Buy & Sell forum and Niconcafe forums.
