Just arrived--it looks brand new. Not a mark on it anywhere. Seems like it's working fine. The only thing I notice is that when manually focusing the lens, the end of the lens (where you adjust focus) is a bit unsteady and the image shifts slightly when I let go of the focusing ring. (I don't have that slop in my Maxxum lenses.) No issues during autofocus though. Could be because it's the 18-55mm kit lens. Can't complain though--I paid less for this kit than what a body only is going for on eBay (on average). Glad I caught it, as it was only listed for a very short time with six bids on it already. Surprised nobody else grabbed it! It looks like longer zooms are not too unreasonable, but I was looking for a prime lens with a wider aperture, as well as a wide-angle zoom. They seem a bit more expensive than the Maxxum/Sony lenses I've seen. Don't need anything now, although something like a 50mm equivalent with a 1.7 or 1.8 aperture (that isn't one of Canon's "L" lenses) would be nice to find. The original receipt came with the camera--with tax they paid $710 for this! The top is cut off of the receipt, but payment method showed "QCard" so I'm thinking it could have been one of those QVC deals.
