It's a go! The order for the Rebel T5 EF-S 18-55 IS II with EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 was placed just after the drop came to an end. Now our vendor will be working hard to prepare it for shipment to each of you.

Look forward to another update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 12/4 or earlier if anything comes up.
Not really an exceptional price. You can buy the body for $269 online and get a better lens with the difference. Also, the last versions of the rebel have more features, so a used unit is a smart choice. Example: T1i with 2 lenses sells for $222.

Will it accept the lenses I used with my Canon AE1 35mm?
GraphCon
Google says the AE1 used an FD mount. The EOS range uses an EF-S mount, meaning only EF and EF-S lenses work with it.
So to answer your question, Short answer: no. Long answer: Yes, with a conversion kit (eg, wont work with the AE1 anymore)
GraphCon
No, it won't. AE-1 is an old Canon mounting system, which was phased out with the introduction of the EF mounting system in 1987. In 2003, Canon introduced an even newer mountain system called EF-S which is in many respects similar to EF. If you want to use an AE-1 lens on an EF or EF-S camera, you'll need an adapter, but if you use such an adapter, you'll lose autofocusing capabilities on the lens. An adapter is a great option if you're ok with manually focusing, though, since AE-1 lenses can often be found at great bargains given that they are no longer natively compatible with recent generations of Canon cameras.
EF-S is the mounting system used by Canon's APS-C (crop) sensor cameras, the first of which was the Canon Digital Rebel in 2003. The EF mounting system, as I said, was introduced in 1987 but is still in use on Canon's full frame sensor cameras like the 5D.
Also, for what it's worth and in case anyone is wondering, EF and EF-S are only one-way compatible. You can mount an EF lens on an EF-S camera, but you cannot natively mount an EF-S lens on an EF camera. That's good news for Rebel and XXD owners, though, because it gives novice users access to a great big *ton* of lenses from both the EF-S and EF lines. With an adapter, further access to the AE-1 line of vintage lenses creates a world of opportunities for Canon hobbyist and prosumer shooters.
Just one caveat for the Canon newbie: new Canon glass can be *expensive*. In many cases, you get what you pay for--Canon lenses are stellar optically and can last several lifetimes if well cared for, but dang, let me tell you, there will come a day when you are tempted by the L series lineup. That glass is pricey. If budgeting is a concern for you, be prepared to do a great deal of research into vintage options and third party lens manufacturers like Tamron and Sigma. The kit lens included with this bundle is a great lens and will do a lot for you, but you probably won't always be happy with 55mm max. Don't say I didn't warn you. :P
Good camera at a great price. If only it came with another telephoto lens...
For those who are looking for a VERY decent beginner to intermediate level camera, you really should check out the Pentax K-50. You can get the black version with 18-55 lens for around $350 and it has much better specs than the Canon in most areas (slightly less megapixels and no HDMI are a couple of the "downsides"). It is a weather sealed camera to both moisture and dust, in-camera image stabilization so no special lenses required for that. It also comes in LOTS of colors :) Not to poo-poo this massdrop, but....

Ah, thanks. That's a new one for me :)
...however, you will not be taking any of these kit lenses to your next camera. You get what you pay for...my last lens purchase (for Pentax!) was $569 for an immaculate used 70-200mm f2.8...sweet and sharp!
