I'm lookingto purchasea Canon 20D, and I know that there is a slew of accessories I will need before I can strat snapping pictures. I wondered if it is a better deal to go with a package such as this one...


What do you guys think?

I wouldnt go for it because the lenses aren't up to snuff. Those are crap lenses for a 20D.

Also, I wouldn't buy a microdrive. Just go out and get a 1 or 2 gig CF card. A microdrive is a battery hog, slow, and prone to failure.

Do you really need the battery grip? Or the memory card reader? I use the usb cable to hook up my 20D to my computer for transfers.

Just go out and buy a 20D with a decentcarry round widezoom lens and a 1 gig cf card. You can use just about any camera case if it fits.

Try looking at B&H photo video online. Their prices are competitive and they stand by their products.

I would never buy an expensive camera off ebay. If there's a problem you really don't know who your dealing with.
