B&H has the Canon Rebel T5 kit with the 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses for $499 (reg. $749). The deal includes a free SanDisk 16GB SDHC memory card and free expedited shipping. Check it out while it lasts here at B&H Photo.
B&H has a nice deal on the Nikon D3100 with 2 lenses, a 16GB SD card, a bag and Nikon School DVDs for only $743. The lenses are both VR models. The deal is valid through Dec. 10.
I think the D3100 is a great camera and a real bargain with this kit at this price. Check out my earlier Nikon D3100 review.
As I have been perusing through the Black Friday ads this week, the one thing I’ve noticed is how underwhelming most of the DSLR “doorbuster” deals have been. And how Amazon’s ordinary prices are inline with these Black Friday deals.
For instance, almost every major brick & mortar retailer is selling the Canon Rebel T3 at $479 as some kind of huge deal. It was $478 on Amazon earlier this week and is $468 at the time of this post.
Amazon is offering a free basic backpack and an 8GB memory card with several Canon Rebel kits (e.g., T3, T2i, T3i), most of which are already cheaper than what’s you’ll find if you happen to make it into a store at 4AM and find them in stock. Throw in the Transcend 8GB card and basic camera backpack, and you’ve got all the more reason to stay inside on Black Friday.

Buy.com has a solid deal on a Canon T3i kit with the 18-55mm IS, 55-250mm IS and 50mm f/1.8 lenses for $999. The deal also includes a SanDisk Ultra 16GB SDHC card, as well as some other “junk” items.
The price of the camera lenses and card is over $150 less than you can find it on Amazon ($1158 total – not including the sorry bag and cleaning kit). This is a great deal on a great camera and lens starter kit. Check it out at Buy.com.
