Hi Phillip,

>I don't need to waste and additional 200 bucks on
>stuff I don't need I'd even be willing to Trade my 3000 in.

In the past, when the entry level bodies have been offered body only, the price was only about $100.00 or so less than the body with 18-55mm VR. In effect buying the kit you are getting the lens for a $100.00 discount.

Unfortunatly the value of DSLR's drops like a rock when the next generation of bodies are introduced and even further as time passes.
This is true for every range from the Pro D_ Series, to the D_000 series bodies.
I would suspect that the entry level bodies would be much more difficult to sell without a lens which would reduce the return even more. Something to think about.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
