It's refurbished and you could probably get the same deal from B&H or Adorama, more well known and reliable companies.

B&H sells the same combo for $100 more - and a 30 day return privilege- and a MUCH better reputation.

I think that is about what mine ended up costing new at the local Fred Meyers while they were having a sale AND a 10% off coupon. Has it's limitations... but I'm getting some good photos out of it with practice. I am quite happy with a lighthouse image I printed out at 20" x 30" taken using that kit.

I'm going to go out in the morning with another local photographer and will get to try a couple of his Nikon (50mm F1.8 and 85mm F.18) AF-D lenses.  Apparently the 50mm F1.8 is only about $125 new and a fantastic lens... but it requires a drive motor in the camera body like the D7100 or you have to manually focus it yourself (fine by me) and no vibration reduction (also fine by me since I'll be shooting from a tripod).  With that fast of a lens, in the daytime I seriously doubt you need any VR handheld... but our plan is to get any cool lighting before and during sunrise (but I suspect we are going to just get a bunch of fog).

The quality of what I can capture blows away my Panasonic FZ200, but it can't do a lot of what my FZ200 can do either as I don't have as much lens range.  At this price I think it is a bargain, but if I had the money, I'd be shooting with a D7100.  Think I'll invest in some really good lenses, then I'll move up to a better body myself... so the D3200 will probably be my workhorse for the next year.
