Umm I paid something like $400 or $450 a couple of months ago for this refurbished from Canon so you are wrong.

Twice now Canon offered refurbs of the T3i body w/ both 18-55 & 55-250 STM kit lenses for $509. First time was last Nov, then a few months later in 2018. The kit sold out both times.

It's all relative. Just don't pretend this isn't retail pricing. Not a bad system; if you do much video as well.

I caution you to pick two lenses from the system and STOP there or it never ends. After all you might also want a flash.

My person choice would be 50mm 1.8 and one (more)tele. Sell the kit lens.

If you wanted wider you could get a fast wide prime without concern of it being manual focus for a better value. Then you 50mm (short tele portrait) would be your balance. Else you could go tele zoom but that's less fast.

I prefer Nikon but it's almost splitting hairs.

I also prefer under $300 for a kit. Don't forget fine used gear and don't worry with mirror-less yet.

It's a system your getting into and their whole reason is affordability, matched components (AF,AE,IS) and (value) flash choices. All to open up more photographic situations (and less editing) *if* you know what you're doing.

It's MOSTLY (not all) about the sensor (highlight DR and color sensitivity) including the default JPEG palate. But you always shoot Raw so that SOMETIMES you can go back and readjust a little; within the Raw latitude. JPEG must be finished most of the time IMHO. Life's to short to edit every picture. Raw never changes and always gives you the choice. [All Raw files have embedded "finished" JPEG's].

Adjust your system right going in and there's nothing left to do. So controls matter.

It's actually all about the whole comprehensive package. The lesser of evils.

P.S. On the computer... stay far away from adobe products. Use open software for free. There's so much to choose from. Consider a whole open OS on a separate hard drive and have the best of all worlds. Yes keep both. Delete nothing. Run all apps in their native environment. If you feel you are not technical then ask someone who is. Even online. Have a friend do installing for you if necessary. On most standard (open) hardware parts then Linux Mint with "Mate" is the start. http://linuxmint.com
