Refurbished with 1-Year Warranty: Canon D-Rebel T6S with 18-135mm IS STM for $750 (add 55-250 for $80 more)

Price drop! The refurbished Canon D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 IS STM with a one year Canon USA warranty was going for $400 at the Canon USA Outlet but as of the time of writing, this dropped to $350. Other than this being an older DSLR in terms of “smartphone features”, this is a pretty good “take pictures with” starter kit, given the price and the 1-year warranty.

UPDATE: the D-Rebel T5i two-lens kit (18-55 IS STM and 55-250 IS II) also dropped in price, from $450 to $400 as of the time of writing.

The Canon 18-135mm is more versatile as a beginner lens than the 18-55mm and in this case the versatility costs $100 more, which for many, it may be well worth the 20 extra PSLs 🙂 But as always, we blog, you decide!

Adorama is having another round of Canon Pixma AMEX mail-in rebate bundles, good until Sunday night (or earlier if sold out, or later if extended).

The bundles center on the Canon D-Rebel T5i with two lenses, the Pixma PRO 100 printer, its 50pk 13×19″ photo paper sidekick, and a Canon shoulder bag. Both options get the 75-300mm f4-5.6 III non-USM lens. The difference between the two kits is that one comes with the 18-55mm IS STM lens, while the other kit for $100 more gets the 18-135mm IS STM lens.

Good lord this is a long winded post, so here are the links before I continue for another ten paragraphs:

+ D-Rebel T5i w/18-55 & 75-300 & Pixma PRO 100 printer + 50pk 13×19″ + Bag for $430 after $350 mail-in rebate (prepaid AMEX gift card)
