Best Canon 70D Deal (Savings on Amazon & B&H vs Costco)

UPDATE 11-23-15 - Amazon and B&H have the BEST deal this week - Ends 11/30.

Add spare 55-250 STM lens for just $149!! This is an excellent deal for a versatile zoom lens.Best 70D bundle Costco deal is the same but comes with a crummy bag and SD card - The Amazon and B&H accessories are better and if you live outside of NY you don't have to pay sales tax with B&H PhotoNot sure if the 70D is right for you? My Full Review of the Canon 70DI am getting lots of questions about the best deal on the 70D - This camera is selling very well and it should. In my review I have found it to be an awesome device for photos and video, perfect blend of features and pro level performance in a reasonably sized and priced package. Watch my Canon 70D Review.Costco is offering a bundled deal with the Canon 70D - Looks good at first glance but it has a couple of issues:

  1. You can put this exact same bundle together on Amazon for almost $100 savings!! (scroll down for details)
  2. The card they are bundling STRUGGLES TO SUPPORT the higher bit rate video files the 70D is capable of producing and slows down quickly when shoot RAW. See my full test chart of SD cards in 70D. Or just skip to bottom and buy the SanDisk Extreme 80 or 45s for better results.
  3. The 55-250 Bundled is the older II version.  The new STM version would be worth your money if you plan to do video with the lens. In fairness Amazon is still bundling this lens too.  At this time the 55-250 STM (my review coming soon) needs to be bought separately.

On Amazon you can get the Canon 70D with 18-55 IS STM and the 55-250 for a savings of $105.  Add in the 2% rewards and in 35 days you will get $27.88 to spend on a spare 70D Battery or put toward a good tripod.  But more importantly those immediate savings need to be put toward an SD Card that WILL work well in your 70D.

OR 18-135 STM for $1549.Not sure if the 70D is the best camera for you? Leave a comment below -tell me how much photo vs video you plan to shoot and your subjects.  I'd be happy to give you my thoughts.  I would also like to ask you to take a second and like my Facebook Page Thanks!
