    I bought the body. I already have a 10-22mm Canon USM (as of today), a Sigma 17-70 and a Canon 70-200 F/4 L

    don't buy from there. you can get body only for $1150 from pcnation.com and amazon.com or $1105 from beachcamera.com

    ritz is $1250. for body only.

    lowest price I've found for kit is $1383 at amazon.com (through adorama)

    ritz is $1450 for kit

    less than $300 difference is a good deal for that lens, but only if you want it and can afford it.

    I work at wolf camera (aka ritz) and I've played with it a bit. I think it's pretty decent considering it's an IS lens. It's pretty versatile so you wouldn't have to change lenses too often or if you don't have a huge collection of lenses, it should get you by for a while.
