The $299 price was with the 22mm, I think the 18-55 was $349. I think the 18-55 kit is available on Amazon still.Yeah, but it's not $299 anymore, although you can get it with the flash for $399 and the flash is $99, so basically the same if you wanted the flash anyway. I missed it when it was $299. I would have been really tempted to buy one at that price since I have several EOS lenses I could easily adapt to if I wanted. But I think I just want it with the 22. Ok, and maybe the 18-55, but probably just the 22.
