it sounds pretty expensive..
a d50 if i m not wrong should be able to get at around $1050, the 1gb card is free, while the 2gb card is abt $100, tripod should be abt $35, box $35, bag $30, book (should be able to sell in clubsnap at $20)
so total up = 1050 +100 +35 + 35 + 30 + 20 = $1270
if i were u, i would get the deal elsewhere, becos the drybox(u mentioned its lousy) and the free tripod(u will definitely need to upgrade it later on, the one they provide cant provide support for a heavier lens with the D50 body), DI123 book basicaly teach u how a DSLR works, wat is iso, wat is shutter speed etc.. [up to u if u need it]
i would get the D50 at other shop, then bargain for a lower price for a 2gb card and then bargain again at least a 30L drybox(get the digicabi digital version, not the analogue one ~ $97), and then if u already made up ur mind wat tripod legs + head u need, bargain it again... grab all at the same time for more discounts :thumbsup:
