Is this a good price? Includes the following:

7D Body

320 EX Flash

28-135 IS 3.5 Lens

Canon Bag

*Does the 28-135 produce sharp images for every day use and to use for traveling with kids?

Grab it, sell the lens at after-market or pre-owned prices and buy a better glass afterward. The 320ex is a good flash. It comes with a video light, useful for lowlight video recording.

Same here in Manila, 7D prices have been slashed by 250-300USD, and one Canon store bluntly told me it's for the arrival of the 6D. Duh!

The 28-135 IS will not fetch a good price on the used market, as it has not been in demand for a great many years. The 320EX is a quite cheap flash, and again one can get more for the same money. Meanwhile the 7D has been selling for $1299, body only new, and is selling for $959 from Canon direct refurbed with a warranty.

Depends where you live. Extraordinarily stupid if you assume all people who post here live in the same place. That is in fact extraordinarily short-sighted. Look at Ebay and Amazon before you use your extraordinarily jaundiced mind.

The word "American" is even in the OP's name, for cripe's sake. Think a little before you type next time.

Again, a plan to sell the antiquated lens and be stuck with an underpowered flash, all in order to get an older body at an inflated price, is as dumb as a box of rocks. Sorry that reality doesn't agree with your worldview.

It's $1699..still way too much in my opinion BUT for those that think it was a deal at $1799.
