    Hey guys, just wondering if this is a good deal on a Canon EOS Rebel T2i especially since it INCLUDES the 55-250mm IS lens + 15-55mm IS lens. I was going to just buy the T2i and 18-55mm IS kit lens package, but it seems buying the 55-250mm lens now would save alot of money? Also prices are in CAD so compensate for the price factors if you live in the US :)

    Canon EOS Rebel T2i Body w/ EF-S 18-55mm IS & EF-S 55-250mm IS

    List Price: $1049.99

    Sale Price: $815.00

    Save: $234.99

    What's your budget? I have that same kit and almost never use either of the kit lenses. Of course, I didn't know anything when I got it so, yeah, those 2 lenses seemed like a great deal. But if you can, I'd suggest finding the camera body only and getting a decent lens separately.

    Yeah... it costs $917 US, but you also have to pay the 13% tax fee at the delivery since it's not added on to the Amazon price and also there is custom clearance fee...
