Hi guys,

I'm on the brink of taking the dive into DSLR. I have done a lot of research, talked to some different people, and have decided that the 5100 is where I want to land.

I've been looking around and comparing prices, but it's not easy with all of the different packages out there. On the Best Buy web site I found 2 packages which, to me look identical, but are $100 different in price.

The 5100/18-55 VR package is on sale for $749

There is a 5100/18-55 VR/55-200 VR/bag combo for $899
$899 combo (sku: 9999167700050002)

And another 5100/18-55 VR/55-200 VR/bag combo for $999
$999 combo (sku: 9999165000050015)

The sku on all 3 piece is the same... just can't figure out why one is $100 more. Is the 55-200 VR lens and bag even worth the extra $150-$250? Just hoping to get some input. If this is in the wrong place I apologize in advance...
