    Re: Nikon D500 and 200-500 lens combo

    Peter, I did not once mention "Nikon" my response except in the response saying it was still a good kit.

    Re: Canon EOS 1000D value

    These comments are all valid. My view in terms of value are:

    Camera body: R700 - R1000
    18 - 55: R500
    75 - 300: R1500

    To sell as a complete kit: R2k to R2.5k = to an end user. You can expect...
