I bought mine as the same kit you aare loking at for $300. I wouldn't care if I paid too much it is such a sweet camera n so much fun to use.. as well as the top quality of glass it has. That 55 is a real looker if it's the one with the huge chunk of glass up fromt in chrome. NICE N SWEET!
People say teh winding mechanisms are rather fragile.. I have absolutely no issies at all n have been using it ofr almost 3 years now. I am carefull n not wind very fast n I also take good care of my equipment.
you'll love it!
