yeah... i'd go body only and spend money on 1 really nice lens. I'll be honest, when I got my canon a few years ago i did a package like this with an 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses. I never used the 75-300 not only cuz I wasn't shooting that far away but cuz BOTH lenses were pretty much junk. If youre going Nikon (which I would probably advise you against because I have a bias for Canon) I'd say get a body only and pick out 1 nice lens.

heres a few ideas...

Rebel XSi body $568

EF 28mm-135mm IS 3.5/5.0 lens $388 or less for used.

or if you can spend a bit more... I'd love to get my hands on this one...
EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS $899 new

obviously those are just canon's but just an idea...
