I am thinking of buying a canon rebel xt and 2 lenses that I found at GeniusCameras. It is a package deal for $729.00 It is the silver body, 28-105mm auto focus lens, 75-300mm USM auto focus lense, 512 meg flashcard, compact flash card reader, case, cleaning kit, full tripod, cap keeper, pack of led protectors....Is this a good deal? I want to take indoor family shots...nice ones...and outdoor action shots at a distance of 300 to 500 feet. Do I need a flash and if so, which one? What does USM stand for. I am a beginner so thanks a lot. Does anyone know if these folks are reputable?:?

It was discussed here recently: Genius Camera is NOT a legit seller. They scam people! Stay away from them!

Check out B&H, adorama, beachcamera (ie buydig).
Also check out Cameta on eBay, they have decent packages: http://stores.ebay.com/Cameta-Camera


There are lots of scams out there, especially those stores from Crooklyn (err... Brooklyn), NY

Thank you. Can you recommend a legitimate vendor with a reasonable price?
