    You can get the same items (though not in kit form), less the bag at Adorama for $339. If you can snag this off ebay cheaper than that, it's a good deal.

    I know nothing of HotDigital as a company. Adorama is very reputable.

    I'd have to echo Jim's sentiment. If the price is better than Adorama's it is probably worth looking at.

    That being said, you will have to decide how much buying from a large, secure company like Adorama is worth. If you have problems with part of the outfit in 6 months, most likely Adorama will still be doing business in the same place. Once you decide how much extra that "insurance" is worth, be it $10 or $75, the nyou will know how high to bid.

    As for the camera, I have a Rebel Ti and love it. It's very easy to use, whether you are comfortable choosing your own apertures, etc or not.
    If you get the camera and have questions, let me know. I'd be glad to help.
