My First DSLR: Canon XSi

I recently purchased my first DSLR, a Canon EOS Rebel XSi (aka 450D).  There are several reviews online, so I won’t go into the camera’s features.  I ordered the XSi kit, which includes the EF-S 18-55mm f3.5/5.6 IS lens, from Amazon for $569.95.  If you combine the purchase with the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4.0/5.6 IS telephoto zoom lens for $255.00, Amazon will give you an instant rebate of $200, making the total cost $624.95.  I was able to sell the telephoto zoom lens on Craigslist for $200.00, which makes the cost of my Canon XSi with the kit lens $424.95.  Not a bad deal.
