Is this a good offer for the 5D?

Hi

Yesterday I wen to a store here in Johannesburg (I'm working there, but I live in Spain) and ask for a Dynax 5D (the store has at least six of them).

The price was 8000 rands, that means 1050 €

That kit includes 2 lenses: a 18-70 one and a 70-300 one, I didn't have time so I forgot to ask for the f values of theses lens.

Is this a good price?

What is the cost in US Dollars? You don't say what brand the 70-300 is, and this makes a difference.

With 2 lens as well? If it is the case the Joburg's kit is very expensive.

Re: Is this a good offer for the 5D?

I've just checked the shop in which I bought my KM 5D and they have double-lens kit (18-70/3.5-5.6 + 75-300/4.5-5.6) for 3131 PLN, plus 50 PLN shipping. Taking PLN -> EUR average exchange rate this gives about 802 EUR. Taking PLN -> ZAR average exchange rate this gives about 6824 ZAR (rands).

Hope it helps you to decide,

Thanks, It looks that is not a good offer, I'll try to find something in Madrid or perhaps wait for the Alpha series.
