($800 + $919) x 0.8 = $1500 after tax
I then sell my Canon T2i/550D and its 18-55mm kits lens for $500. The end result is that I get a 60D & 24-105mm for the same price as buying a new 24-105mm, which was my original plan.
I like the idea of this plan, however I would spend another $450 and upgrade to the 7D instead. (1358 + 919) x 0.8 = $1950 after tax.
