This Canon 40D and the full set of accessories needs only a lens to get you going. The body, battery grip and all parts shown work as designed with no flaws or faults. The grip is a Canon BG-E2N, not a generic copy you can buy. Four batteries all take and hold a charge and the 6-AA battery tray is included. This allows you to use the camera with a set of 6 AA batteries in case your rechargeables fail. The Canon battery charger is also included along with a 1GB CF memory card.
All the manuals, CDs and Canon materials are in the box along with the Canon strap, cables and wires too!
This is one of best examples of the 40D I have owned and it didn't see much use with me. The factory box is from a kit but there is NO LENS with the gear. A variety of lenses can be found with ease and the 40D can use EF or EFS mount lenses as well as aftermarket models.
I don't know the shutter count on the body but everything functions as designed. I have used a 40D to capture commercial images of all types including those used on high-quality calendars. Whether a beginner or simply moving up the Canon food chain the 40D is a great way to reach the top.
