Given that the batt is apparently an actual
Canon BP511 ($50 B&H), this looks to me like
Costco had originally planned to sell just the
stock DR kit at a much lower price, perhaps
$675, and Canon interfered - so Costco came up
with a bundle representing comparable value for
the consumer dollar.
This suggests that the factory cost, and wholesale
price, of a 300D are low enough to potentially create
a new price-point for entry-level DSLR, at any time
Canon wants to define it. $500 anyone?
