    PC show's prices are a rip-off

    just that they throw in cheap freebies like their bags, tripod and memory cards

    if you want the best prices go to camera retail stores like john316, cathay

    instead of mega-deaprtment stores and pc shows unless you want all the freebies and a higher price

    so dont have to wait for pc show if you dont want to.

    Hope that's not your only purpose joining this forum. Spend some time reading first before you post questions. Helps much more.
    Your 500D comes with a kit lens. Get this and learn from there. Read the other threads here, many times people have listed which accessories are useful. PC Show is .. well, a PC Show, right? Why do you expect to get a good camera deal then? There are shops (see Consumer Corner) that are reputable and helpful for newbies. But still: do your homework and search first. No point coming back later asking "Was is a good deal or ripped off?" - the money is gone.
