    Canon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM LENS
    Includes EW73-II Lens Hood
    UV Filter

    Ultra-wide zoom lens with portrait-length telephoto capability. By having multiple lens groups move during zooming, the lens was made
    compact and lightweight. The Ashperical element suppresses distortion. High contrast is maintained at all focal lengths and sharp images
    are obtained.

    OTHER:

    SanDisk CF Card Reader, USB
    52mm MultiCoated UV Filter
    58mm Super MultiCoated UV Filter
    Gratag-McBeth ColrChecker / Color Rendition Chart*

    *Note: The Gratag-McBeth
    ColrChecker / Color Rendition Chart was not inexpensive by a long shot.
    However, I will not have use of this once the above is sold. It has not been factored into the overall
    selling price.



    $900!

    Not bad at all however the description of that lens as "ultra wide" is laughable. You might want to look at POTN and Fredmiranda.com for other deals on this camera.

    The 30d is fine, even a 20d is good enough... That lens is pretty meh though.

    You can do the 350d, but you'll be upgrading in a year or two anyway and the kit lens might as well be a piece of broken glass duct taped to the camera body, and the grip is a requirement unless you have dainty asian hands.

    You think so? I made a thread before about being new to photography and that I'm 100 percent confident that I'll be able to excel at it and really enjoy it (as I'm already quite artistically inclined).


    Here's a few of my latest pieces:

    I just hate going through the process of having to resell something just to upgrade.

    I'm too hesitant to buy shit from random fuckers on the Internet--my trust level is next to 0.
