"Great camera and kit!"

I am also a white balance and color nut. Sometimes I still wish I had purchased the 40D at a comparable price. The software also defaults to save your original pic. So i bought this kit under a month ago and I'm in love with it. It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200.
