Isn't this the price everywhere without the bundled junk? Only the memory card has value and a 32GB is $20ish

Bought a similar bundle from Focus last month during eBay's quarter end eBay bucks promotions, making it even better. If you can wait, the eBay 15% or ebay bucks promotion is always around the corner.

Don't buy the xc lens. Get the xf 18-55mm lens with the 23/35mm for $1450. Much better deal!

Can you explain why? I'm thinking about it.

The 18-55mm lens has a lower overall aperture than a standard kit lens, coupled with fantastic optical image stabilization. Most people say it's not accurate to call it a "kit lens" as it really is better than most lenses included in kits. The XC is lower quality overall, higher aperture (which means less light, less bokeh). It's made of plastic, vs the XF's metal design, etc. Just check out the youtube reviews of these lenses. They're in different classes. But if you get it, definitely pick up either a 23mm, 35mm, 55mm lens along with it. If you don't want one of those prime lenses, I'd buy it from you for $100 more than you'll pay for it as part of the kit. Smilie

Try Greentoe.com if you only need the body. I am getting offers for $699 for the silver body, and $275 for the black 50mm f2 WR. Not sure about the black body, and other fujicrons, which may be more popular and consequently, less discounted.

If you need the other extras though, the Adorama bundle can be a good deal too. Splitting the discount and using retail price, you are looking at X-30 for $749 and lens for $300. That's about ~$50 off used price each for a new copy. + UV filter for the lens.

The XC 15-45 zoom is a little weird. It uses power zoom, i.e. turning the ring doesn't change the lens mechanically, instead, it tells the camera to turn the zoom via a digital signal. Every time you switch the camera off, the lens resets to 15mm. That said, 15mm is a very nice angle to have compared to 18mm.

Happy buying!

I think the best deal so far on this combo was from Amazon when they came out with 18-55 as part of deal with 23F2 lens, this is at the most average deal with 15-45 lens. I think I'd go with greentoe route and buy body and just 23F2 off of ebay.
