i want to creat my own dslr package deal.  you should let me get free to creat it. for example. i want to buy  canon eos 7d+15-85 mm+70-300mm+50 mm 1.8  but i have to buy them seperately because you dont offer that package.  you can see my package and offer me a deal on this package.

Packages like that are pretty much always from the manufacturer (Canon) rather than company generated.  Not sure there's anything that could really be done except for passing the idea on to Canon.  Unless it ended, there was a package for $250 off the 70-300mm lens with the purchase of any DSLR.   Not likely to see the 15-85mm or 50mm lens on packages because very few, if any, stores actually carry them on hand.

I agree.... entry cameras are sold with lens bundles as the consumer does not know what to get


The mid-range models have people with various interests (low light? macro? general purpose?).  Retailers would get constant requests to swap one lens or accessory for another. It would get worse as components get more expensive.


Breaking the components up with individual pricing is much easier.


BTW.... if price is an issue... have you considered Nikon?   I find their products to be more affordable.  Still can't over the price comparison for a 28-300mm between them.  The 36.3 mp D800 is HUNDREDS cheaper than the 5DM3.  With the savings you can still get a mid-range NIkon camera body as backup.

As a photographer I cannot agree more, but as an employee of a large retailer I'm not sure this would be feasible. The point of providing bundles is to get a customer a discount when purchasing more than one item. We of course could not leave the pricing up to the customer, which would mean there would have to be some kind of algorithm to adjust the price depending on what is added to the package. Any thoughts on this would be great.
