The 28-135mm kit lens is a very good lens for the price.
The $690.00 from Amazon is way too high as from the places I have looked they are more in the $400.00 range, but for $220.00 more with the camera, that's a good buy.
I bought the 40D with that same lens and find it to be very sharp and clear and I probably use it more than any of my lenses.
I am tempting to upgrade to 40D from Amazon, as the price drops to $899 for body only now !
Some friends suggested me to get the one with kit lens for additional $220.
I found the kit lens 28-135mm is about $690 on Amazon. Other sellers are selling $200 less though.
I have 18-55mm, 50mm, 70-200mm F/4 L so far, with my XTi. Is it worth to get this kit lens, considering its discounted price?
