Been doing lots of research/etc, on DSLR's under $1k. (mybudget) Was at Costco yesterday, they have Canon Rebel T1i "kit" for $949, included mfg $100 instant instore rebate. (not on the website either, just in store) -Canon Rebel T1i -18-55mm IS lens -EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens -4GB card -canon bag -etc Bought it I debating to just open it and use it, or wait until 11/27 Black Friday sales to see if a better deal is available. My first DSLR; the last SLR I had was a vintage Pentax "Super Program Plus" circia 1986, sold that with 3 lens on ebay 2.5 years ago. I excited to have a decent DSLR finally.
