Glad you are gettng closer to a decision.
Ernie is right. Many of the "kit deals" on Amazon should not be trusted. While I have purchased a few lenses there, they were all either sold by Amazon or from a trusted authorized Canon reseller such as Digital Goja in FL. These days I buy my equipment from B&H or Canon. I did just buy a Sigma Dock "Kit" from from Amazon (Digital Goja) actually, but it was a cleaning kit bundle for the same price (with tax or without) and everyone needs a few lens puffers, cleaning cloths, etc.
But definitely stay away from sellers offering a complete package that includes tripod, filters, flash, memory card, storage bag.. and so on. These are often grey market or refurbished produtcs and you just don't know what you're getting. While saving money is impotant, deals on Canon's site come and go. Somethimes its timing. Good luchk, you're in the home stretch.

This is not a super sharp shot as I had the snap it hand holding my biy Siggy S 150-600mm zoom. But it is sorta cool with the hummer chasing away the wasp from the feeder.

So I ended up buying the 77D. Here is my very first bird in flight shot. Please, I am aware it is awful. Just wanted to share because even though it is blurry and way sub par compared to what most here are probably capable of, it is my first and I am excited about it. It was taken through my living room window from about 25 feet away. I used the kit lens, Canon EFS 18-135 USM.
