    I found this post on craigslist. Assuming its not a scam does this lookk like a worth while deal for a begginner to photography?

    EOS Rebel Body ($100)
    28 - 80 AF Zoom Lens ($100)
    75-210 Kodak AF Super Zoom Lens ($140)
    6 rolls of film ($20)
    Tiffen UV Lens ($30)
    Carrying Bag ($35)
    Large lens hood/ glare guard
    Manuals, strap etc.

    He is selling all of it for 110 dollars.
    Thanks for any help!

    If it's $100 for the whole kit, sure- go for it.

    If he wants the price for each item then no. Check ebay for an idea of the going rate for these items.

    No, yea he wants 110 for everything listed there
    Is it decent equipment. Something a begginner can figure out but also offer some creative room?

    The camera is good entry level body, so you are good there. The Canon lens is adequate but I don't know about the other one.

    For $100, sounds like a good deal to me. You can add a 50mm F1.8 lens for less than $100, which would be a good combo.
