Actually, $900 is for the body only, while $1,100 is for the body and the 16-105 lens. And B&H lists it as discontinued, Adorama doesn't even list it, and even SonyStyle lists it as out of stock.

Don't forget the crop factor. 100mm on a T1i is like 160mm.

And a 70-200/2.8 lens is big and heavy. But you could also use the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8, which is like 80-240mm, and it's a lot smaller...

And nothing else can touch it.
