Re: Kit lenses or negotiate?

Something a lot of people dont know is that the retailers will get kick-backs (rebates) from the manufacturer if they sell an additional lens (specific models) with a camera. This is why certain lenses will be sold as packages. A perfect example is the ones you're looking at. The store might be able to make something happen on the back end to get a deal off of a different lens, but it's likely doubtful.

But for what it's worth, get the 55-300. I had my a300 alongside the old 18-70 and 55-200 and always wished I had the little extra.
