Cord Camera just opened a new location here in Dayton and they're running an ad: Nikon D50 body Tamron 28-300mm f3.5-6.3 XR lens Epson PictureMate Express $699.99 AR Plus you get a gift card for 10% of your total purchase... which would amount to $84.99. Plus some other stuff. I think I'm going to hop on it, but I wanted to bounce it off the more knowledgeable folk around here... get opinions on the deal, the lens and such - since I am new to the SLR arena. So let's hear it.... anyone? By the way, the * means, "Offer expires December 3rd. Offer valid only on in-store purcahses."
