you guys this is a RED HOT deal on a canon rebel t5! right now you can get a canon rebel t5 DSLR camera with an 18-55 lens set for $399. that's $150 off retail AND $100 cheaper than it is on amazon right now.
i have a canon rebel t3i (almost the exact same camera, just 2 versions older) and i LOVE IT. almost all the photos you see on this blog are from that camera. i highly recommend getting the canon EF 50mm 1.8 lens if you can to go with your canon rebel. that will allow you to get the photos with really blurry background (bokeh) for a pretty affordable addition. this is always something you can get at another time too.
i know some people will wonder if black friday will bring a better canon rebel deal and i'm going to say not likely. we may see a deal comparable, but probably not significantly better. and you never know if it will be on the same camera or if it will sell out super fast because it's black friday, so i highly recommend going for this deal if you've been wanting a DSLR!
