    I know that a lot of seasoned photographers will think the 70-300mm Nikon lens is junk, but since I am a beginner this should be fine for a while.

    I bought a brand new Nikon D80 package with a ton of accessories from a trusted ebay powerseller(tripod, cases, 4gb card, usb reader, cleaning kit, 28-80mm, 70-300mm, wide angle, and lots more)

    This a great deal, am I right?

    total after shipping was $1,087.99

    Looks like a pretty good kit if all goes well. The only thing i might question the quality of is the flash and tripod. Cause that seems like an obvious thing to use a lesser item to get the price down. But even if they are both junk even all the other items are a great deal. For a beginner that flash should be fine though. If the tripod is wobbly though you might want to consider investing in a better one, a wobbly tripod never helped anyone! :)

    Haha - I love how the blur out the product name on the memory card with "4G Memory Card" - youll get a Transcend no doubt, but if it works it works.

    Not a bad deal; I'd probably sell most of the "kit" items, and get me a new lens - but they are good lenses to start on definitely.
