Yet again I am amazed by this community. Thank you (yes, even the moderator that removed the links.
! I didn't know I shouldn't have posted those. I stand corrected.
From my research I've found, like other people already said, that there is very little variation in price between the real dealers and I am going to go with a good reputable source. It might cost me a few extra bucks, but I think the service and peace of mind is worth it.
I perused the resellerratings.com website and found it to be useful.
But now the decision is made, here's what I am getting:
Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera Body Only
Replacement Battery for Canon EOS 7D / 5D Mark II (LP-E6)
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens
Lowepro Fastpack 200 (Black) DSLR Camera Backpack
Canon Speedlite 430EX II with Flash Diffuser
I think those should get me off to a nice start. Suggestions always accepted..
