Buying a Canon 500D

I’m in the process of working up to finally moving into the digital age with a SLR, and I’m looking for a Canon 500D plus kit lens 18-55, and thinking about upgrading to an ultra-wide zoom for landscapes, and a plastic-fantastic 50mm as my extra lenses.

There’s an excellent review from the digital picture.com here.

Looks like the best prices for the kit are in the US at the moment at the equivalent of around 622 EUR, then the UK at around 760 EUR, then France at 800 EUR. I’m not going to the US any time soon, and shipping from the UK would cost the equivalent of the difference between the UK and French prices… so I think I’m just going to have to buy it locally here.
