Hello! I've been checking out the local prices for a new Canon 40D and the old 30D, and Futureshop/Bestbuy have a good deal on a 30D with the 28-135mm IS USM lens. They are selling it for $1199.97 http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10088577&catid= I would like to get the 40D, but I'd be paying another $500.00 to get it right now. I need some advice. Do I wait until boxing day like I had planned, and get the 40D with the 17-85mm IS USM lens, or should I just get this kit and not miss out on this deal? I've read a review on the 28-135mm lens and it sounds like a good lens. I would be getting a 50mm f1.4 lens for the closer pictures in the future. I just don't know what to do! I have no problem waiting if I can get a good deal, but I also don't want to pass this one up. Thanks for the input!
