I know that there are some serious photogs on here. A place called Dailysteals has ocasional "Flash" sales dedicated to different brands or types of products (in addition to 4 or 5 unique daily items). Well, today's Flash is Digital SLR's and equipment. i do not own a D-SLR but they have a Canon EF-S 55-250 f/4.0-5.6 for $175. I take it that this would be a grey market (non US) model but it's about $5 cheaper than a similar "import" one at B&H and $75 cheaper than a "US" one.
